What are some things you have learned and/or tasks you have accomplished so far this semester? Explain thoroughly (Use videos, pictures, upload materials etc. as evidence of learning in your blog)
- As part of my work with the Eddy, I had to develop a one page newspaper to advertise Newsies. By using skills I gained with Tech Team (resourcefulness through technological curiosity), I formatted the newspaper with no prior experience. I’m quite proud of it.
- I also got to see how the Makerspace project I spent a good part of last year working on is turning out through the recent library renovations. It’s a little weird to see it all come to life.
What aspects of your work are successful? What aspects of your work are challenging? What steps did you take to overcome these challenges / what adjustments did you need to make? Is there anything you can do improve? (with your approach to the project, or altering the project)
- I’m combining these questions because while the majority of my work was successful, actually getting the work done was challenging. I regularly help students and teachers with technological issues and update Rapidevent, but school has been so busy lately that I haven’t had the time nor energy to really invest myself in any new projects. I hope that, after all my university applications are done, I will have more free time at school to dedicate myself to the social media time and any other projects that involve Tech Team members.
Do you have any feedback or suggestions, as we move forward, that could help the Tech Team meet the needs of our school and staff / be more effective? (Provide specific examples)
- I think the rapidevent newsletter will be beneficial to the school community in keeping everyone updated and aware about things they can be apart of.
- In terms of tech support, I think making it more clear to students and teachers how and where they can seek out help would help decrease the amount of stress many members of the school feel when it comes to technology. Having the WAVE consistently staffed would help, as well as perhaps creating a “Common Issues” document available in every classroom so teachers could help resolve student issues.
