Last week in our synchronous session we talked about a steep learning curve. I feel like I’m on it. Steep means that we can move upwards rapidly, but the climb is also harder. Every time something new appears, I get a bit tense, but I find that if I read or listen a few times, a light bulb goes on and I can feel a palpable flash of understanding. This is very rewarding (excellent behaviorist strategy, Leah!). I can see how this class not only can provide conceptual knowledge but experiential knowledge. I feel as if I’m flipping back and forth between student and teacher (much more on student side now!!), but I am also beginning to see how I can embed my course topic–abnormal psychology–into the VoiceThread and Scholarblog technologies. Sometimes (after those flashes of insight) I am having fun and that’s good.
