My previous PLE
My progression in e-learning - my development
The tools I experienced
What have I gained
I work in the food and beverage department at the Blue Mountains TAFE
I enjoy teaching and to continually learn more about this fascinating and ever changing industry every day.
My work and the technology I am using
In my classes I use PowerPoint. I found students enjoy the visual learning experience when I use industry pictures. My expertise in new technology is limited. I am looking forward to developing my technical skills for long life learning and for my students.
Case Study 4b: E-learning in Furniture and Joinery
(Heritage Restoration) –
University of Ballarat (TAFE)
I have been able to appreciate and value teamwork more since I have completed Assignment 3 - discussing current issues in e-learning in our organisation (WSITAFE). Not only do we all share the same views; we also experience similar restrictions for e-learning in our work environment. Through our case studies on “ e-learning in the trades” we have shared and discussed our thoughts and concerns’ and this in itself has been of great benefit to me as a teacher and I feel that I am not the only one in this situation. Our group work presentation last week not only discussed the importance of e-learning but how and if it fits in with our pedagogical environment, and the limited management support for equipment in some cases.However as teachers we can implement various free sites such as Photo story 3 and develop resources that will assist the students in preparation towards their practical skills. This type of project is not always funded, therefore through the teacher’s passion and personal time they develop this resource.I also enjoyed the experience of group work via a wiki site through TAFE as our collaborative work for this assignment. I did experience difficulty in entering the wiki site from my home computer but eventually succeeded. I would also like to take the opportunity to thank my fellow team mates for their support and good nature when developing this assignment. I enjoyed working with you all.CheersDebra Kreuzig
