I completed my first video podcast for my digital media course this semester. After battling and I mean battling with technology for the past 2 weeks this is what I was able to compile. I have high standards and it doesn't pass muster with me so I am bound and determined to learn how to use my software better and I will tweak this till I am satisfied with it.
In the next day or so I will post my trials and tribulations with the whole process. I started writing it but it was quite an ordeal so I will finish and share with you later on.
Back in January I attended a conference in Orlando and met Dr. Robin Parker from Nova. She told me about a conference that they hold at the Ft. Lauderdale campus each year focusing on Issues in Autism. When I mentioned that I was a doctoral student in ITDE she mentioned that the presentation this year was going to have a technology focus. I finally received the information and registered to attend. I am always interested in learning about how I can use technology to reach all of the diverse learners that I come into contact with. One thing that I have learned after attending several presentations lately is that the methods that are being used with exceptional populations are just solid teaching methodologies that are relevant for all learners. I look forward to learning some new information this weekend. I will blog about it some time next week...stay tuned.
My journey in the field of education began back in the classrooms of my youth. I can remember helping peers in math class when they did not understand how the teacher presented material. The path has lead to many different arenas and I have grown as a person and as a professional with each new experience. Pursuing a doctoral degree is an exciting time and new doors are opening each day. I enjoy being a lifelong learner!
