The difficulties I had this semester :
I am not really good with computers, so it was difficult to go on iTune for the podcasts and to make it on my blog.
At the beginning of the semester, I felt lost because I was not in this class at the first semester.
I am not so interesting in technology and making the blog was difficult.
I don't have the access to Internet very often and it was sometimes hard to have time to go on the internet.
Even if I am not interesting in technology, I have discovered and learnt many things as websites. I think I will use again Wordle, Voicethread and perhaps Blogger! I think it is important to learn such things for a teacher, and I hope I will use these tools with my students. I have the impression that I am better in technologies and I have new tools for the future.
I also have the impression that I have improved my English listenning the podcasts and I have new notions and vocabulary I think it is important to know as a teacher.
The thing I have prefered was Voicethread because I like working in groups and I love create and imagine stories, we were also really free for write our stories and we had the choice for illustrate it. I think it's a very good think to propose to students.
So my conclusion is very positive, I think we were considered as adults in this class and not as students. I have prefered the second part of the semester but the whole semester is very positive.
