What are the things I believe in as an educator? This was my task for my learning manifesto. I really enjoyed working on my learning manifesto. This was my favorite assignment during the Concepts of Educational Technology course. As I created this assignment, I felt like I was really showing my voice and taking the ownership from the COVA model. Getting to choose my format and really working with a product that I could show my learning through creativity was great. In the beginning, it actually frustrated me. I wanted to know what am I supposed to create? What should it look like? But as I have gone forward in this class I see that the process is what is really helping me learn.
This is what I want for my students. I want them to develop their learning using their choice, voice, ownership and authenticity. Ownership and authenticity are also so important. I know that what I am creating here is not just a paper going into a file never to be seen again. It is a living document for others to use and hopefully learn from as well.
My Learning Manifesto is what I believe and what I want the rest of my career in education to be about. Alan November’s work on technology is something I am really getting into and looking forward to studying more moving forward. As I move forward I am asking myself a question he asks, “What am I currently doing withing my curriculum that I could be doing better by using technology?”
