My own goals and the goals of the program go hand in hand. The main thing I want for myself is to be transliterate specifically in the area of mastering how to implement technology such as i pads, applications and web tools in meaningful and purposefully way to engage my various leveled learners. With all the new and valuable information I will have learned from completing this program another goal of mine is to transform myself as an educator with new lessons and new ways to teach by leaving augmentation and becoming redefined.
My thoughts of how my fellow cohort members can support me with completing my capstone would be primarily through their feedback. Because they are the teaching experts I would depend on them to engage in honest, constructive and helpful discussions from their evaluation of my work. Ask me genuine and clarifying questions, and offer quality suggestions for improvement. In return I would do the same while remembering not to be overbearing, rude or disrespectful to the hard work they have put in so far.
I also believe an important group norm is to assume positive intent. People have different circumstances in their lives(kids, impairments, travel) as we have seen so far that can make the program more challenging so coming together with the right attitude makes a difference in the learning environment.
