One of the final projects for ECMP 355 is to create a Summary of Personal Learning. The purpose of this project is to summarize the learning experience that I had in the class.
Here is my Summary of Personal Learning
Summary of Personal Learning on Dipity.
At first, I had a lot of trouble trying to decide what I wanted to do for my summary
of learning… I knew what I wanted to say, but I didn’t know what I wanted to use to
say it. After looking through all of the tech tools I have compiled over the past few
months, I stumbled upon a website with tools to create online timelines. That’s
when I knew, this is what I am going to do for my summary. I created an online
timeline using Dipity and went from there.I wanted to re-cap everything that I had
learned in class, and express my thoughts and reactions to all of the things that
we did. The timeline uses some exact dates, and some dates I guesstimated on.
I found Dipity extremely easy to use once I understood the basic concept of it.
I liked the idea that I could add my own pictures, links, and videos to each event.
Unfortunately I was not able to add narrative or music directly into the timeline.
These are two additions that i would have liked to have in timeline, but I feel
that even without narrative or background music it still gets the point across
and covers everything I wanted to. This is a great tool that I would definitely
recommend and will use with my students in the future.
I must admit that although I was very overwhelmed at first, I became quite fond of
ECMP 355 and enjoyed my experience in the class. I plan to continue using and
building on what I have learned. I would also like to thank Alec and my entire
PLN for teaching me so much, and I hope to continue this learning process!
Also, thank you to my friends and family who may not be educators but continue
to help me learn and grow as a person and encourage me.
