Well folks… That’s it, that’s all! However, before I officially wrap it up, here’s a little background information on my Summary of Learning…
Since learning about Creative Commons licenses, I aimed to use the majority of my photos from this resource. In addition, Alec spoke to how humans shape tools and eventually the tools shape us. He made a reference to people taking pictures of notes and how this is not an effective use of a tool because it does not promote learning retention. This resonated with me because writing is such a huge part in how I learn and consolidate information. Bearing this in mind, I decided to do something that involved writing. Creating jot notes, symbols, and mind maps to showcase my learning this semester felt meaningful and came naturally when filming. Lastly, I love anything stationary related. I went out and bought myself a whiteboard and a multi-coloured Expo marker pack… Was this necessary? No. Did buying brightly coloured dry erase markers spark joy? Yes. In EC&I 833, I originally wanted to do a video like this. However, since the class was focused on educational technology, I felt it was more appropriate to create my summary using a tool I learned about in the class. For this summary, I was excited to put my original idea into action! The video looks pretty low tech, however, a significant amount of editing, filming, voice recording, and learning how to work my fiancé’s Canon M50 camera was a process. I had some knowledge on how to use the camera from EC&I 832, but it has been a while!
The conclusion of these classes are always a little bittersweet. I had so many artefacts of learning this semester I wanted to share, making it incredibly difficult to choose which pieces to highlight! Nonetheless, I’ve enjoyed this journey and the relationships I’ve gained throughout the course. It has been a pleasure learning alongside you all!
Now sit back, relax, and (hopefully) enjoy!
Until next time,
