A few months ago, I was talking to one of my fellow workers, Iraima, and she mentioned to me that she was doing an online course about learning technologies for the classroom and that caught my attention, I said to myself, hmm that sounds interesting, I could do one of those courses since I am into technology and that can help me to improve my ICT skills in my classes. I guess I’ve always been interested in technology; I remember when I was like 10 and I first saw a Walkman, I was like waow, this is great! I couldn’t stop thinking how fantastic this new gadget was; so since then I’ve been impressed by every new technological device or software that has been launched, and also how they’ve made our learning process easier and more fun. I believe that learning technologies are a great tool to use in the classroom, the effective integration of technology has the ability to engage learners in a variety of ways.
When Iraima told me that the British Council was going to offer another online course about learning technologies for the classroom starting in October I quickly went online and had a look at the British Council website and read all the steps to book a place in such course. Once I booked my place in this course I was really excited about it, I couldn’t wait to start and then the starting date finally arrived. I really enjoyed the first WizIQ session last week; I was like a child with a new toy.
Even though this week has been chok-a-blok, I’ve spared a few minutes when I had the chance to do the activities for Module 1 and 2, I guess this is the best way to do it, little by little when you get the chance on weekdays.
This learning process is really enjoyable.
