Contemporary Issues in Educational Technology: Summary of Learning


It’s hard to believe that another semester has come and gone. This has truly been one of the most challenging, yet inspiring classes I have been a part of. I never expected to grow and learn so much in just a month and a half. Debating contemporary issues in education is something that every educator should take part in because it allows you to see issues from all points of views and widen your perspective. If you would like to go back to the beginning and read my reflection of each debate, you can click the links below:

  4. Not What we Are Learning, But How: A Look Into Inquiry-Based Learning
  5. Is Social Media Ruining Childhood?
  6. Cellphones in the Classroom: The Controversy Continues
  7. Is it Fair to Share?
  8. Nothing Good Comes From Being Neutral

Like I say in my Summary of Learning video, I am so grateful for everything I learned during this semester. I feel impacted by each one of you in my class… whether it was through your stories, your perspectives, your humour, your blog posts, your tweets, or your encouragement. Thank you for being a part of my #edtech journey and for pushing me to be a better educator so that collectively, we can make a difference in the lives of others and in our world.

  1. Hi, Amanda, I really enjoying watching your summary of learning, thank you so much for creating such an informative and easily understandable piece of work. particularly for me, a non-English speaker, your language and well-organised train of thoughts truly help me better understand what we have learned from our classmates and Alec. Love the compact but delicate visuals too.. 🙂


  2. Amanda,
    Thank you for being a familiar, friendly face in this course! Right off the hop, you extended an offer to help me if I felt overwhelmed or lost, and I am so appreciative of that! I appreciated your passion for teaching and tech, and your insights and perspectives you offered in your blog posts. Thank you for contributing to my edtech growth this semester!


  3. Amanda, you brought so much insight to the table in this class. It was intriguing to see and hear everyone’s points of views on all these issues. My knowledge has widened incredibly and I have soooo much more to learn compared to the rest of you! Thank you for being such a strong empowering leader in this class. Your summary of learning demonstrates both your creativeness and thoughtfulness in Ed Tech as well as other issues in the world! Thank you!
