Self assessment

  1. 1. Self Assessment<br />Jessica Lochel<br />#tfw11<br />
  2. 2. To Be Technologically Literate Means:<br />According to David Richard Moore technology literacy has three levels which include:<br />Being able to identify technologies relevant to a task.<br />Understanding how to use the technology and how to navigate its interface.<br />Understanding the inner-working or structure of the technology.<br />
  3. 3. In Addition to Moore…<br />I would like to add that being technologically literate has another level:<br />Being open to learning new technologies as old ones fade, which is especially important to people like myself who are future educators.<br />
  4. 4. How to Become Technologically Literate:<br />According to David Richard Moore you develop this literacy when you:<br />Assist learners by helping them identify technologies relevant to a task.<br />Assist learners in understanding how to use the technology and how to navigate its interface.<br />Assist learners in understanding the inner-working or structure of the technology.<br />
  5. 5. Level One: Identifying Technology<br />Be able to identify which sources of technologies are appropriate for certain tasks.<br />Understand how and why a certain source of technology is the best option for your task, and identify other possible technologies as well. <br />
  6. 6. Have I Developed Level One Literacy?<br />By completing this Power Point presentation, I have shown that I can identify an applicable technology appropriate to use for this assignment.<br />I have identified that twitter is a means of immediate communication, both socially and academically.<br />I did this by tweeting both in and outside of the classroom whether it was a tweet about my day, a random thought, or notes from our class.<br />
  7. 7. Level One Cont’d<br />Through the use of Google Documents, I identified a useful way to work on projects with fellow classmates in and outside of the classroom.<br />Blogging on Tumblr was a useful was to communicate writing longer than just the 140 characters that twitter allows. <br />
  8. 8. Level Two: Understanding How to Use Technology<br />Be able to understand the inner workings of a technology for a certain task<br />Do not need to know how a technology works, but have more of an understanding of how to interact with it.<br />
  9. 9. Have I Developed Level Two Literacy?<br />Google Docs seemed to be pretty easy for me to navigate. <br /> I was able to create and share one of the two documents used for our group white paper.<br />I was able to leave notes and communicate with other members of my group through our documents.<br />
  10. 10. (Cont’d)<br />Twitter-<br />I was able to fully understand how to tweet to everyone, to just a group by using a hashtag, or just to an individual.<br />I was able to understand how to follow a person.<br />I had difficulty figuring out how to delete a person from following me.<br />I understand how to tweet short messages less than 140 characters<br />
  11. 11. (Cont’d)<br />Google Buzz<br />I understand how to navigate to view buzzes or blogs others have left.<br />Had difficulty completely understanding how to create my own buzzes and blogs through this technology.<br />
  12. 12. (Cont’d)<br />Tumblr<br />I understand the interaction with this site enough to have added my own personal blog with a picture attached.<br />
  13. 13. Level Three: Understanding the Structure of a Technology<br />You must be able to understand how the technology works.<br />Be able to modify technology when problems arise<br />Analyze the structure, and be familiar with it’s functions<br />
  14. 14. Have I Developed Level Three Literacy?<br />I do not believe that I am familiar enough with any of technological structure to consider myself to be at this level of literacy.<br />I understand for the most part which technology should be used for certain tasks, and understand how to maneuver them, but am not comfortable enough with the structures of them if a problem were to arise.<br />
  15. 15. Personal Reflections on Twitter<br />Outside of the classroom, Twitter seems like the same thing as a Facebook status update. I don’t really care too much for this part of it. However, I did find it useful while in class to tweet about what was discussed, and then go back and see if I missed anything. I also liked the immediacy of tweeting. While I was open to it during this module and enjoyed learning it, moving forward, I don’t see any room for it in my life, personally.<br />
  16. 16. Personal Reflections on Google Documents<br />I feel as though Google Docs has been the most useful piece of new technology I have learned in this module. Its affordances allows for great communication while working on a project with other classmates. I really delved deep into this technology and enjoyed being able to edit a paper with other people at the same time, without having to be face to face. I can definitely see myself using this in the future.<br />
  17. 17. Personal Reflections on Tumblr<br />So, I tried blogging, and enjoyed reading others blogs. I haven’t quite figured out why else Tumblr would be of any other use in my life. Unless, of course, a professor was using it to post assignment descriptions, I feel as though I would have no other need or want for its use.<br />
  18. 18. Overall Reflections<br />With all that has been stated previously, I would definitely consider myself more technologically literate than I was before this module, having not known really how to use any of the new technologies I’ve mentioned.<br />I would not consider myself a master of these technologies and would need to get to know them even better before being able to assist anyone else with becoming literate.<br />I feel as though I have been open to trying these new technologies which is important moving forward when I become an educator. <br />
