The crazy thing is that I am probably considered a fairly tech-literate person, and I have always been comfortable and enthusiastic about trying new things with tech in my classroom. Yet, this class has me completely overwhelmed and it’s only week 1. All week I felt like I should’ve been ‘doing something’. Whether it was reading articles, or engaging in some sort of research around the topics. After endlessly scrolling for a couple hours on the weekend, I sort of just gave up and hoped that I’d learn more about what I should be doing each week in class tonight.
This class is so different from the other 5 graduate courses I have taken, and that is not a bad thing, but I really do feel like a fish out of water. And someone mentioned last class about already thinking about our final project!? Yikes!
I hope tonight brings some clarity, and I hope I can gain a bit of confidence so that I don’t feel like I am drowning. The good news? Anytime I have felt like this in my life, it has turned out that I was in exactly the right place that I needed, I just didn’t know it at the time. I am banking on the fact that this is where I need to be. Wish me luck!
