Guided Reflection for M.Ed. Instructional Design and Technology Highlights of What You Learned
This course allowed me the opportunity to understand the differences between digital natives and digital immigrants. The difference between todays learner and myself, the need to address these differences through changed pedagogy and the integration of technology in teaching and learning. The need to create a studentcentered approach as opposed to a teachercentered approach. The ideas for the need to innovation and creativity were introduced. Current and future trends in education were also examined to develop a sense of whats happening and what likely to happen in the near future on the educational horizon. New Horizon Report. The need for changes in educational leadership and philosophy were addressed in order for changes at the instructional and learning levels to occur.

How Course Was or Wasnt Relevant to Your Education Context


This course was relevant to my educational context because it helped to confirm and make me more aware of the differences between my generation and 21st century learners. I realize that many of the knowledge Ive learned and the way I learned it is not completely applicable today. This in turn due to the technology in todays society has created a need in a change in traditional pedagogy and utilizing the technology effectively for todays learner. New methods of instructional delivery are rapidly evolving and depending on the educational setting need to be used differently. This creates the need for innovation. Working in a court school educational setting I need to find the most effective uses of the technology I have available to meet the needs of my learners.
