Reflection on Chapter 12

I agree with Mr. C that distance learning lacks emotional support. I learn better with visual and auditory input. I did not enjoy my classes I took online as well as the classes I have taken in a classroom. I really like the discussions we have in our Tech. class. I like the give and take.
The "School Sucks" video was very intriguing, yet controversial. Since I already work in the school system I agree with some of the things he said, but I disagree about teachers not needing certification. I think there should still be guidelines for what a person must have before they can become a teacher.
I thought our powerpoints were all great. I was surprised with how different everyones powerpoint turned out. I appreciated the feedback. They were not as hard as I thought they would be, but they were a little frustrating.

  1. Creating lessons for class is much harder than creating them for students. Instead of having to make sure to "cover the bases" that the teachers want, we concentrate on what outcomes we want from our students.

    I have not decided what my stance is on certification. While I think a vetting process needs to be in place for teachers, I am pretty sure that most education certification degrees do a lousy job of it.
