Title with apologies to Bob Dylan! (My slightly foggy mind is still catching up on readings for 4 papers, hence no blogging for the past week! Terrible reflection. Must improve as I now have no excuse to be a lazy blogger!)
This is the first year of my Master of Teaching degree and it has provided me with some exciting learning to date. I am now a full-time student after 12 years of full-time and full-on (!) teaching and learning. I'm enjoying the time to step back and read some interesting and thought-provoking research, conduct my own research and learn a great deal from others.
In EDUX423 Technology-enhanced Learning, we have been exploring a range of different learning formats that cover personalised, collaborative, lifelong learning and communities of learning.
One group has set up a blog - The Blog Team:
and some have set up a wiki:
Alongside of these ways of showing lifelong learning that is both personalised and collaborative, we have all communicated through our online learning environment, Moodle.
I have worked with a team to complete an assignment; a team whom I have not met face-to-face, but together we have collaborated to put together our blog and run our online discussion. I have learned a great deal, been challenged in my thinking and contributed to the discussions. Who would have thought this environment possible 15 years ago, when I went through the College of Education?
