Week 2 Learning Log BOL

Well, week 2 is here and this means we (Deaf Ed) only have two weeks left to get our first class online and ready to run. Eddy and I briefly discussed the possibility of one week just familiarizing the candidates to the concept and components of the online learning for the course. There is some fear but it can be overcome. We need to approach it as a learning experience as we learn how to perfect it.

Debra struck a chord in me regarding our preservice program. We are preparing our candidates to enter the work force knowing how to be as savvy as can be with all that is available; however, we are preparing future teachers to meet with students in a K-12 environment but preparing them to be ready to enter the global world market. Something is not right with this thinking. So, how do we infuse enough knowledge of a global society to our preservice candidates so they are well equipped to prepare our future teachers. Teaching online seems to defeat the purpose for their own instruction will be f2f, not online. This is a thought I have to struggle with a bit more.
