Throughout this module I have gained insight on what the world of being a teacher involves outside of the classroom. Growing up I remember teachers talking about going to conferences or workshops and sometimes even traveling for these, but I never really knew what these were. From this module I have now learned that these were probably Professional Learning Communities. It sounded silly when I was younger but I now realize how important these communities are. This lets educators from all over the country collaborate and talk about what has worked and what hasn't worked for them. Giving each other new ideas or theories to test and even encouragement from the education community.
Knowing what to spend time on and what to move past when using technology in the classroom has always been a difficult balance for me. Thankfully, this module gives a variety of lists I can follow to receive links with credibly sources that I can use with my students. This module suggests using youtube as a learning platform which I absolutely love. I know many of my teachers have shown or used youtube videos in my classes and it has been very helpful.
