Week 3 reflection

I tried Delicious tool for the first time this week. The registration was very easy, but it is not clear how to link my favorite web sites, so I copy and paste the URL. I believe there is some function to link by just click. I tried delicious button to move to tool bar by dragging several times, but it doesn’t work. I wonder why. I feel I'm learning new tool.

I read some project which had done in the past, and I could get some concrete image toward “project”. I’ve learned most is their clear objective settings. Well, I’m shaken up by their project and feeling in trouble because I still cannot decide what kind of tool I will use, on what purpose I do action research, how I should carry out my project…I cannot narrow many possibilities to one.

Week 2 - reflection

 This week I’ve got flu since Monday and I have to be absent from my school. I could not take care of my little children, what a terrible week for my husband and me! Nothing will start by complaining…Now I’m OK. At least I can write my blog like this.

 I would like to put my thanks to people who gave me comments. Thanks a lot. This is my first blog, so I didn’t know how happy when I get comment from someone! Also, I thank e-learning system itself! Even I was sick at home, I still can learn something new.

 This week I learned how many search engines are on the Internet! They broaden my world for certain. I’m ashamed that I used only Google and did not think about other engines at all. Very often I need supplemental information about a topic covered in a textbook. Especially I am not familiar with science, NSDL will help me a lot. It will be my treasure.

 In addition, I got new idea – abcd method. That’s the way to set objective in a class. The objective should be observable and assessable, which is the important point for me to think about well. It is because I tend to set the unvisible objective like “understanding the usages of relative- clause”. What is more meaningful for me is that I could notice I put two or three objectives in one activity. By using abcd method, I can sharpen my intention why we do an activity. I myself can know my objectives clear. I mixed goal and objective many times. This notice is harvest for me. I need more training to think by using abcd method, though.

Week 1 Reflections

This week was a series of new things for me- first experience of online discussion Nicenet, starting to blog, and facing for a long time in front of a PC screen. It was like walking in a forest with a lamp at night. I'm still not sure whether I could survive this week or not. When I cleared one step, I felt what's next. It is far from enjoying the web operation. However, thanks to kind support, I managed to come here.
Without this opportunity, I would not even try blogging though most of my students do blogging. I know I need change, so I feel glad that I was forced to challange new things. Without change, no improvement. I appreciate this opportunity very much.
