‘17 Things’ Lite Edition was an enlightening experience during which time I learned how to better utilize technology in the classroom. I was also introduced to sites that will be perfect to use in my personal life and artistic practice. Because I just graduated with a Masters of Fine Art in media a year ago, I feel very comfortable using the Internet as a teaching tool. However, the influx of technological tools are constant and infinite, so ’17 Things’ served an accessible and fun means to catch up with the latest and the greatest amidst the world wide web. And it is wide. The only challenge I experienced through this process was the aptitude of each tool, and I feel as though I only scratched the surface. I look forward to spending more time exploring these sites and taking advantage of the progressive and communicative features in my classroom and beyond.
In one sentence, I would describe this learning experience as a fun and accessible means to stay in touch with the latest Internet teaching tools. In one word I think ’17 Things’ Lite Edition is PROGRESSIVE. Thank you for the opportunity, I look forward to exploring each resource further on my own time!
