Hey guys. I’m Jennifer and this is my last semester as an undergrad at Mary Washington, though it’s weird for me to say that because it hasn’t really hit me yet that I’m actually graduating. I think part of that is because I’ll be here next year too while I complete my master’s degree in Education before I start teaching elementary school the following year.
I’m taking this class for a couple of reasons. First, because I love the idea of mixing history and technology. Those two words almost seem like oxymorons to me, so figuring out how they’re going to fit together is going to be interesting. I also like the alternative approach to this class, we aren’t going to be
skimming reading a book a week and pretending to pay attention to class discussion. I like that I won’t be bored out of my mind in this class.
The other reason is because I’ve enjoyed all of the classes I’ve taken with Dr. McClurken so far, so I’ll assume that this one isn’t going to suck either. 🙂
I like to think I’m pretty comfortable with computers and technology, and what I don’t know I’m willing to learn. So it’s not really the technology aspect that’s scary to me. I’m more worried about what’s going to be expected of me and the amount of work this class is going to require.
Anyway, I guess that’s it for now. ♥
