I’m sure you have all had a lecture or something in your life that has not gone as planned or you “failed”. Have you ever thought about the experience and what you could have done differently? Of course you have, without failing we do not have options to discover.
When we fail we come up with alternative solutions which would not have been discovered without it.
I am constantly failing on how to copy and paste u-tube videos, other links, etc, while learning to navigating a Mac, understanding Moodle and trying to be engaged in forums, figure out blogging and be the best on-line student I can be! How could this possibly be a positive thing I ask my self? What could I have done differently? Researched what an on-line course entails before taking it would be a start? LOL (can we use texting abbreviations when blogging) one more thing I have to look up!
However, on a positive note. I am surrounded with educational and inspirational peers. I am learning numerous teaching techniques from my class mates and Instructor. Slowly, with numerous tears I am learning how on-line classes work, blogging and I havn’t even attempted this forbidden digital project yet!
