This week I, along with Jocelyn and Logan taught our mini-lesson on digital citizenship. Overall, I must say that I was really happy with the result. Of course, teaching about this topic was something that was out of my comfort zone, but I ended up learning a lot throughout the experience and I gained a lot of valuable knowledge from it. Even throughout the lesson, I felt like I was learning a lot from my classmates who were participating in it and I feel like that is one of the biggest positives of the activity.
On another note, I also really enjoyed getting the opportunity to explore new educational technologies, specifically with NearPod. I am not sure how I stumbled upon it to begin with, but it is something that I will definitely be using in the future. It had a lot of great functions and the more I explored, the more I found I was able to do with it, and it can definitely be adapted to fit all subject areas.
Being that there were three of us teaching the lesson, there are definitely adaptations that need to be put in place should I want to teach this in the future, but I believe that will not be too difficult to do, as the main bulk of the lesson in very student-led.
In the end, I was happy with the outcome of our lesson, and I gained a lot from the experience. Now I get to sit back and let everyone else teach their lessons!
