It’s that time of the semester when all of the loose ends are being tied up and, boy, is it exciting! I am proud to present my first ever Summary of Learning video, which was created using a new-to-me tool, Canva. (Shout out to everyone who recommended or referenced this website – I am still just a beginner who is delving into the different content that can be created there, and I am thoroughly impressed! I know I will be using this tool a lot more in the future!)
I chose to divide my learning in EC&I 832 into three categories (which I am just now realizing is very similar to the way the course is set up – imagine that!):
- informal learning from blogs, Twitter, Discord, and Zoom chats
- formal learning from class content
- personal/professional learning from my Major Project
As this course comes to a close, I am left feeling satisfied and proud of the journey I have been on – I have come a long way since January and learned A LOT! When I signed up for this course, I looked at the name of the class and went, “Okay, ‘Digital Citizenship’, I’ve heard of that. But ‘Media Literacy’? What exactly is that?” Now I can say I’ve developed a curriculum resource that introduces both of these concepts to the youngest of learners!
It has certainly been a ride; thanks for joining me for it!
Until next time,
Great work as always, Kara! I have been playing around with Canva Video as well both with my students and for my summary of learning and agree that it is a really easy tool once you get the hang of it.
Thank you so much, Holly! It feels very good to be done another course and reflect on all of the learning and changes that have occurred as a result of this course. I am looking forward to seeing everyone else’s Summaries of Learning! Canva has totally converted me – I am a big fan!
I’m so glad you were able to take in so much from this class. It’s been a great semester and I feel like I have also changed as an educator. I’m happy I could help you out with a book recommendation! Tik Tok has been great for me as well this course with learning new things. Your video is really well done, and enjoyable to watch!
Thanks for the feedback, Megan! Kudos to you and the other classmates who have taken multiple classes with Alec/Katia and continually finding creative ways to present your Summary of Learning! That book was a wild ride – I read it over February break and it had me on the edge of my seat!
Great presentation of the knowledge you have gained during this course! Canva is a tool I would like to explore for future summaries of learning.
Thank you for your comment and the kind words, Brittney! I am looking forward to exploring Canva more – and seeing all of the tools our classmates have used to create their Summaries of Learning.
You did a really good job explaing your learning, connections you made in the course, and reviewing the course content. I like how you created your video, and I can’t say enough amazing things about Canva. Thanks for all of your input, comments, etc. throughout the semester. It’s so great getting thoughtful feedback. I appreciated it so much!
