We learn so much about all of the different types of technology that can be used in the classroom but after observing a few weeks I did not see any of the technology that we had talked about in class. After learning about creating movies using imovie in class last week it was interesting and exciting to see this technology being used in a classroom I observed. In this particular class I observed made habitat movies. They had pictures and a few words on the video with their voice recording telling about their animal and the habitat it lives in and the adaptations it made to live in the specific habitat. The videos were really well done and they seemed to learn a lot from making their own video and watching their classmates, because when they were quizzed about their content they really knew the information.
What was the neatest thing for me to see was there was a student in the class that had a few disabilities. I thought it was so neat how well his project was done. Using this technology of making a video really seemed to suit his learning style and the limitations he had. Now I can see how important technology can be for students like him, he could present what he learned in a technological fashion allowing him to learn and do the same projects as his classmates. I also took this as an important lesson for having lots of assessment and teaching methods to reach all types of learners. After watching this lesson and learning about making movies in class this week, I am starting to think that maybe implementing technology in the classroom might be more doable then I thought.
