So, this is my last and final blog about my professional Development with Structured Learning.
I want to start by talking about some of the things I have learned from this Professional Development. I really enjoyed the idea of having my students use Minecraft to learn. The articles I read on Askatechteacher.com about Minecraft were very helpful. I enjoy how Minecraft allows the students the freedom and flexibility to problem solve and create their own worlds. I love games, and I think games are a great way for my students to learn.
The information on Google images, and copyright law is very helpful! The more I am educated about Copyright and images on the internet, the better I can prepare my students for the dangers they could face in the future. The idea that there are people that create images just so they can find people that downloaded it so they can sue them was shocking. It really opened my eyes to what the internet world is like! And it is even more amazing how easy it is to track someone who downloaded your image illegally.
The final thing I want to take away from this experience is my new desire to create my own blog website! It may not be based on technology, but the education I received from this professional development, will be very helpful to me creating a blog in the future. For example I know there is only a certain percentage of content you can quote form someone else's blog. Any more than that percentage you can be in trouble.
So thank you Askatechteacher.com! And thank you structured learning for all of the valuable resources and support. God bless!
