ITEC 299 Level 3 Synthesis Presentation

  1. 1. Synthesis Presentation ITEC 299 Fall1013 Nadia Ruiz
  2. 2. My Motivation… Graduation was my motivation for this class. With only so many units left to graduate, I was determined to add as many classes as I needed to fulfill the units needed. I took an interest due to the title of the class “How 2 Learn w/ ur iPod”, I did not have a clue on what to expect.
  3. 3. My Learning Preference • The personal learning preferences survey scores concluded that my learning styles were 7 on active, which tells me that I like to participate actively with what I am learning. I scored a 5 on sensing because I learn better with facts rather than theories. Scored 3 for verbal, due to the fact that I enjoy group work and retain more information by listening and repeating. Lastly, I scored 3 on sequential because I take information given to me, step by step, to find a solution . From these scores I realized that I learn more easily in a teaching environments.
  4. 4. Thoughts on Learning Preferences.. • I really enjoyed that we were able to figure out our learning preferences in the beginning of class because it gives students a focus on the best way we can achieve success according to OUR style of learning and no one else’s.
  5. 5. Learning Warrior • I chose the Learning Warrior pathway at the beginning of class because with this pathway I was able to obtain a greater understanding of technology I was already using. I wanted to get a deeper investigation into fewer technologies. With this pathway, I was able to indeed improve my performance in other courses, like my Spanish classes for my major. Choosing to be a Learning Warrior gave me the opportunity to discover and learn more information on technologies I already had.
  6. 6. Activities • The activities from this course contributed a lot to my way of learning by giving me a chance to explore technologies in greater depth. To begin with, the quizzes were the start of the contribution because I was able to inform myself better on how to use each technology and more aware of apps. From the mini lectures in class I was able to succeed in level 2 and 3 activities because I was able to apply the concepts learned to my personal learning style and personal life. By evaluating each technology and applying it to my life, I now know what works best for me. Being able to communicate with our professors, from the introduction to the end, was also a great advantage to my learning.
  7. 7. Top Three Technologies 1. The first of my top three technologies is iPods and mobile devices to enhance my personal learning. Going over the quizzes and mini lectures, gave me some insight on how I can use it for flash cards and study tools. I use my iPod to stay organized and it gives me a chance to evaluate how I learn and how I can apply it to my classes. I especially used it for my Spanish classes as a study guide and tool. The mobile device quest accommodates both my active and verbal learning styles because I can review almost all my class work through my iPod and review as much as I want.
  8. 8. Top Three Technologies cont. 2. The second of my top technologies is social bookmarking because it also accommodates my active and sensing learning. I am able to connect and communicate with other people via the social bookmaking site Delicious. I can also use sites like Delicious, to interact with my classmates and share important concepts, such as websites or documents. Sites that keep me engaged and comment on information I am learning from class.
  9. 9. Top Three Technologies cont. • The third of my top three technologies , which I enjoyed a lot, is podcasts in the media department for interactive learning. I enjoyed this one because I was able to better familiarize with how to use podcasts as a study tool for my courses. This technology mostly accommodates the verbal part of my learning because I can listen or watch a podcast as many times as I need to. I was interested in learning more about this technology because many of my professors already use podcast for lecturing and I wanted review my notes in a different way. Podcasts help me achieve a greater way of learning because I interact with with my peers and professors.
  10. 10. Experiences with the technologies • I believe this class is great to take in high school or as a freshman in college because, with so many technologies around us, the only way to use them effectively is to know how we can learn from each one to be able to succeed in a high school or college setting. I have learned a lot from this course and not just about how to learn but also the way I personally learn and how I can apply it to my daily life. I am really happy I chose to take this class because I was able to learn so much on know technologies. I will continue to use my iPod to create notes and flashcard, social bookmarking to collaborate with other students and people. Lastly I will use podcasts as a learning tool as well. The experience has defiantly been one of a kind! The class forums help me learn and understand the class and it is great we were able to contribute to others learning styles.
  11. 11. Physiological factors and learning practices • Every since I was a kid my parents always had me maintain a healthy lifestyle but never taught me to control my stress level or what to do when I got nervous when speaking in front of my classmates. I chose to get a deeper understanding of the respiratory and nervous system. I use to really freak out and my heart would start to race in class just knowing I had a presentation that day. Then when I presented I would be shaky and super nervous. After learning about these two systems, I am able to control both. I have improved in my Spanish 543, where most of our exams are oral and written based. I don’t stress out or get overwhelmed like I use to and its really a great feeling because it was very difficult for me to focus on my studies. Knowing about physiological aspects of learning is key to succeed because I now allow myself to take a breather and continue with class.
  12. 12. What I will take with me from this class.. • I will use what I learned from this unique class for many of the adventures to come after I graduate. Each strategy that we have come in contact with to better my learning has opened multiple doors for me not just in class but for when I go out into the “real world”. Using the iPod, iPhone, social bookmarking and podcasts as a learning tool, have help me immensely by giving me the opportunity to understand not only what fits best for my learning style but what fits best for me as an individual. I will intergrade all aspects of this class to enhance the teaching career I will eventually undertake. Without this class I don’t know how I would be able to stand in front of 20 students all looking up at me. I know that when I am in my career pathway I will most likely teach technologies and learning practices to my students on day to better enhance their learning.
  13. 13. • My experience as a Learning Warriorwhile to At first when looking over the syllabus, it took me a understand the concept of this class. I read and reread the course work and I thought “what did I get myself into”, but after completing the work and truly learning at a different level, I would recommend this class to all students. My experience as a learning warrior was great because I was able to apply knowledge I already knew but in greater depth. This class has given me more than the units I need to graduate, it has given me a life lesson that I can’t say about a lot of classes I have taken at State. I am truly grateful that I was given to take this class because the professors and leaners made it both beneficial and interesting to follow.
