  • Slide #11 - 'Successful lifelong learners are not afraid to fail. They realize that failure’s role is to teach us. We learn more from our failures than we do our successes.' I need to become comfortable with the fact that that failure is a part of the learning process. I tend to want everything to work right the first time.

  • I have always liked to be challenged because it does feel like I am growing when I am challenged. However, when it comes to technology challenges easily turn in to frustrations for me. I need to remember to see these as opportunities for growth and work through the frustrations. That is my goal for this course.

  • Slide 9-View Problems as a Challenge is the slide I chose because I have had problems just getting to this spot. What have I learned thus far? To get up, walk away, and come back later. I know that I one weakness for me is the fear of the unknown, but in attacking the unknown, and working through the problems with it, I learn so much. In the end, I will look back and see how much I have learned and grown.

  • Slide 9 is very important for me so that I will stay organized and will use technology to help me plan every detail. Technology changes every second, so this course will help me add new tools in my toolbox and use them in different situations.

  • For me slide 9 is most helpful. I need to stay organized in small bits at a time. This helps me get the big picture in the end. I enjoy learning new ways to utilize technology yet it isn't my field of expertise and that's why organization of what I am learning as well as use of it is key for me.
