Thing #1

As I was going through the lifelong learning habits tutorial, I evaluated myself on whether or not I have such learning habits. I found the easiest for me were habits one and six. I like to set goals for myself so I have something to work towards, and I using technology is too intriguing not to take advantage of every opportunity it is present. Some learning habits I struggle with are habits three and four. For habit three, viewing problems as challenges, I especially struggle with because I get easily frustrated and I sometimes allow a problem to "defeat" me. Habit four is difficult for me at times because I second-guess myself and I lack the confidence needed to become an effective learner. By utilizing Web 2.0, I hope to effectively learn how to access new and emerging ideals from the web for educators. I have never created a blog of my own, so setting up one slightly worried me. However, as I began to read on how to set it up, I became intrigued and anxious to create it. The process was easy due to the directions given. My favorite part about creating this blog was being able to personalize it with something such as a background. 


  1. I agree with you about habits three and four. I too struggle with them as well. Whenever I face problems I tend to stress out and let them take over. I also tend to lack confidence at times and second guess myself often. However I am changing my point of view and attempting to view solutions to my problems as a goal, and as long as I stay true to who I am I have no reason to second guess my confidence.

  2. I also lack confidence in myself especially when it comes to school. I sometimes regret not sharing my thoughts in class activities because I usually find that my input would have been correct or helpful. The use of technology is amazing, I sometimes wonder how my parents and grand parents made it through college without all of the helpful resources technology brings us today!

  3. I often lack confidence with learning as well! I get discourage because I want to know it all! I am learning to accept that no one knows everything! :) There is ALWAYS more to learn! I think using technology is so great! I am glad we have access to technology! I agree with cuffelman! I am not sure how they made it either! :)
