Assessed Activity 2.2 (2016) Technologies

One example of integrating technologies into learning which I find to memorable is actually a current example, and is a part of project I am working on for my Project Multimedia class. For this project I am working with a friend, Juliette, to develop a website for her new business. She lives in France and this means that I need to utilize digital technologies in order to communicate with her about the project. One technology in particular that we are using is Google Docs. This technology allows us to collaborate on the project in real time and means that information, ideas and questions can easily and quickly be shared and accessed. Not only can I use this technology to work with my friend on the project, but it is also a way to learn about communicating with a client when they live remotely.

An instance where I feel that technology has been a barrier to my learning is sometimes in the use of powerpoint/online presentations in the context of teaching a class. There are times when the person up the front will rely too much on a static powerpoint, which mostly just consists of text, to teach the material. This type of teaching is extremely disengaging and does not work at all for my learning style.
