Level 3 Activity
By: Madeline Manuel
What motivated me to take this class?
• - What motivated me to take this class was that I was
interested in learning about using different technology
devices, content, and the background information behind
it. It can be overwhelming sometimes and I find some
comfort in taking an informative class such as this.
• -I really wanted to see how I could better my
understanding for the different technologies that are
offered to us in our generation. I would then value the
information past on to me and would by able to use it in
real life situations and scenarios. Just receiving
knowledge in something I wanted to learn about is what
really motivated me to take this class.
Personal Learning Preferences
• - Reflective: For reflective I scored the lowest (1) because I
found that I don’t really look over my work over and over again
to make sure that it is perfect. I like to do things right the first or
second time because I find that if I change my thought process
to much it ends up being to detailed.
• -Sensing: for sensing I scored the most (11) because I found
that I am more of a learner that is willing to know more about
the different factual content that the subject has, rather then
going deeper into the subjects. I find that this is more practical
since I will be using this kind of factual information on a day to
• -Visual: For visual I ended up scoring in the middle (5) because
I find that I am able to learn different subjects through an
interactive environment and an individual environment as well.
• - Sequential: For sequential I scored a (7) on the sequential
side because I am more of an individual learner and don’t
necessarily prefer to work in groups.
What I think about my Learning
• -It is definitely an important part of this class to be able to
understand and know your learning preference because
we all have different learning preferences and we are able
to understand the content better if we pick the topics that
would seem more appealing to us. The great feature
about this class would have to be that we are in control in
to what we want to learn and how we want to learn it.
• -After being able to find out the different learning
preferences that I had, I am able to improve on what I am
still pretty weak on and use what I am good at to my
• The learning pathway that I chose in the beginning of this
class is the Learning Warrior where I would go more in
depth with the different topics and quest that this class
has to offer. I believe that since I already have a couple
gadgets that I am knowledgeable about, I find that this
learning path is perfect for me because I will be able to
learn more thoroughly to how all my devices work. I find
that since I did chose the learning path as a Learning
Warrior I will be able to really go in depth with all the
different technologies offered to us in our generation.
• I find that the most helpful activities that stuck to me the entire
semester would have to be all the activities in the
metacognition quests( Lifelong learning). By doing these
activities I was able to really focus on trying to understand
myself first before actually learning the different technologies at
a basic level. This strategy was helpful because I could fully
understand each topic more thoroughly since I was able to
really understand what and why I needed to improve the way I
• The activities that helped me dig deeper into understanding the
different aspects of each subject were all the level 2 and 3
activities. I find that these activities really helped me to become
more engaged with my classmates as well so we would all
have to same level of understand the different concepts and we
would all put our input in to help better each other and
Top Three Technologies
Ipads and Tablets
-The first technology that I was interested in learning first
would have to be Ipad and tablets just because I actually
own an Ipad myself. I figured it would be a good way to
learn different ways and strategies to learn with my Ipad
and further my understanding to how everything works
when being concurrent with school work as well. What
really helped me out was that I started to use my Ipad to
take notes in class. My notes were unique because I was
able to draw different diagrams which would aid me as a
learner because I am a visual learner myself. It was a good
way to use my Ipad because I was able to review my notes
once I had to study for an upcoming exam.
Top Three Technologies
• - I was a little hesitant about using podcasts to learn
because I feel that it would take to much of my time. What
really caught my attention and what really wanted me to
give it a try would have to be the versatility that Podcasts
have to offer. I was able to look up any topic that I was
interested in learning and I was able to listen to the lesson
at anytime and anywhere. It is convenient for people that
are on the go like myself because having a lesson
available to your continence gives a person no excuse to
not understand the material thoroughly.
Top Three Technologies
• Social Networking sites
• -This technology I have had previous knowledge about
but I wanted to broaden my horizons and find out what
else social networking sites have to offer. I know that
social networking sites really help me connect with people
all over the world and it can really help motivate me into
being more interactive with myself and the people that I
communicate with. For example, I will be able to really
express myself visually but it can also give me an
opportunity to express myself actively and verbally as
well. This is can help people that are shy come out of the
bubble and will eventually be more comfortable talking to
people in real life situations as well.
My Experience with Different
• I would have to say my experience with the different
technologies that this class had to offer that stood out to me
would have to be the games and mmog one because I never
thought that games can be as interactive and fun as can be will
still being able to learn a concept or topic of interest.
• The technology that really surprised me the most would have to
be podcasts. For some reason I always thought that Podcast
was just a radio segment that was used for entertainment and
not for learning. Now that I understand Podcasts more I am
able to truly understand why it can be used for learning.
Podcasts provide many different channels and offer many
different topics, so I can see why it can be useful for people on
the go and even for people that like to multitask.
• The technology that I found to be a little overwhelming would
have to be social bookmarking because it is not a guarantee
that the certain information is genuine or if the information is
• I have really incorporated some physiological factors in
my learning style since I am now exercising more to keep
myself healthy and alert and I am also trying to get at
least 7 hours of sleep a night.
• I will definitely try to incorporate getting more sleep and
maintaining the 7 hours of sleep I receive per day. I will
also bring more whole grains, fruits and vegetables
through out my diet for the entire day. I feel that since I
will be exercising and having a better lifestyle I will be able
to be positive and more physically prepared for what lies
ahead of me.
• I will continue using my Ipad and laptop devices in order
to better enhance my educational journey throughout my
college career. I will definitely use all the different
strategies that I have learned in this class and even
incorporate the different learning styles that I have
practiced. I will definitely continue to practice my note
taking skills and incorporate that into test taking and
practicing and studying for exams. I will also continue with
a healthy lifestyle such as getting adequate amount of
sleep, exercising and eating healthy. Also another
important physiological factor would to keep hydrated. I
also will be more open into using social network sites as
an ultimate tool into helping me stay connected with the
world around me, even if I am not physically there.
As a Learning Warrior
• I felt that I was ultimately able to achieve a more
informative layout of the different technologies that we
have in our society today. I now know that there are more
ways to better our community and our understanding of
the different technologies because we are in control of
what we are able to do.
• -As of today and in the future, I will have a better
understanding of the different ways technology and how it
has a great impact on how we learn.
