I must say, that after reading the orientation information on Study Desk for this course, I am quite impressed, and dare I say it, even excited! The lecturer’s introduction already has me won over. His style and attitude towards teaching & learning makes the student feel at ease and part of the process that is constructivist learning, rather than just a passive viewer.
Also, the laid-back admission of the way ICT can often go wrong, for everyone, made me feel that I wasn’t alone in feeling out of touch with some of the newer technologies. If I have difficulties, I will know I am probably not the only one, and that there will help if I ask for it.
So here goes, wish me luck everyone, and good luck to you all too. We obviously can’t avoid technology and its ever-increasing presence in our lives, so we might as well enjoy it as much as we can!
