Class, BYOD next meeting for an activity. Class dismissed.
It's such a hassle that ma'am makes us use more technology.
Why? I think it's beneficial for us...
Yeah, I think so too.
I 'm not a techy person so I worry about Ms. Jones' class.
Well, you have to start using more technology.
Hmm I don't want to put in too much effort to catch up with my technological skills. Heh, whatever.
Class,use your tablets and download the notes I sent in the cloud.
Cloud? I wonder how they use it... I am so clueless about technology, this is bad!
After the semester, the class was tasked to write a reflection paper regarding their experience in Ms. Jone's class. The were asked what particular scenario made an impact to their academic lives and now, Venice is writing her paper...
Ms. Jone's class is about history but nothing about the subject matter struck me rather, what made a great significance and change in my life is knowing that I cannot keep hiding in my shell and have to adapt to the ways of the new world. Technology whether we like it or not, is now a part of our academic lives and so we should be well aware on how to use these (e.g. virtual reality, bio-metrics, etc.) I once tried to ricochet technology but now I know how gravely important it is.
