I have learned a lot in my Digital Media in the Classroom course about technology integration in education by both students and educators. This week, I realized with my latest assignment that video blogs are not my favorite. Especially when given a time limit (sorry for going 10 seconds over – I couldn’t help it.) I find it much easier to be able to type and edit my words in written form than to video them. I like that I can go back at a later point and focus my work before publishing. This can be accomplished with video blogs, but in my case, not as easily. I rarely have a hard time talking… except for when a camera is on me. I say “um” a lot; something I don’t do in normal dialogue. I suppose, that like all things, it’ll take more practice.
This video blog is 2 minutes on how I plan on continuing to develop my five minds as discussed in Howard Gardner’s book 5 Minds for the Future. It’s a great book that everyone should read if you plan on succeeding in your workplace or society in general.
