Reflection 4: Digital Tools

Hello Everyone!

For this topic, we explored and discussed the digital tools that we are using in our classes. The focus of our group is to identify the digital tools that we can use in our classes and how to integrate them into our synchronous and asynchronous activities. In our discussion, each one of us was tasked to share a tool that we are using and show the group how to use it through a short video presentation. I have several tools in mind but I chose to showcase a tool that I am using in my Statistics class. I prepared a short video presentation and submitted it to our group. The task leader in our group compiled all our submissions and prepared them for our final output. The final output was greatly done and it is like a menu of different tools that we can use in our classes.

The whole process when we are conceptualizing and organizing our final output was fun and enjoyable because every time a group member suggests a tool, we are allotting a short time to navigate and familiarize the tool and check if the tool will be helpful in our respective classes. Every member of the group has a unique tool that they used. I learned a lot and I discovered new tools that I can use. In this topic, I saw again the value of individual contribution to create a great group output. Also, each member of the group suggested ways how to properly integrate the tools into our synchronous and asynchronous activities. In this activity, it manifested that learning doesn’t always come from inside the classroom, it can also be found by connecting with other people.
