"No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.” John Donne
This journey we are on is reminiscent of a travelogue. We are sharing with each other and collaborating on assignment clarifications. The ripples are landing all across the field of education. At first, I was extremely hesitant to share and post my assignments in fear of rejection. In my past, education had a one right answer for the teacher type of instruction. Opening my writing to my colleagues as empowered my thoughts and also allowed me to reflect deeper on the research.
My audience will be special education teachers in the secondary area who are trying to use handheld electronic devices to engage students and increase student achievement. I am beginning to gather the appropriate background information about the iPods and their use in secondary schools.
I hope to be able to share my research through the blog, the campus I am working with, and possibly through others in the field. In my current position as a consultant, I am accustomed to oral presentations and feel extremely confident when asked to present information orally. But, when it comes to presenting in a written form, I remain hesitant.
It is my desire to achieve confidence in participating in the Masters program which requires sufficient amount of writing and reflection.
