Module 5 Concept Map

Module 5 Concept Map

So, here is the link to my Concept Map for Module 5. ConceptMap.Courduff.J

I used Inspiration to complete it and saved it as a .pdf for viewing.

Where do I fit on the spectrum? That depends on which hat I happen to be wearing at the time. As an adjunct for a local university, we use a hybrid model for our courses. When I wear the adjunct hat, I find that I am on the dynamic side of the spectrum. I love this side. Endless possibilities with less hurdles to cross. I am able to “color outside the lines” with celebration.

When I put on my K-8 Instructional Tech Coordinator hat, I find myself on the static side. In fact, in that world, the static side is perceived as “radical” and “innovative”. No wonder K-8 education is so far behind….

That being said, I am encouraged by Roger Everett’s (2003) role of the innovator. This is a person who dreams and goes for the dream without applause, without support, and with great courage. We in Ed Tech are just that. Here’s to the dream.

By the way, I’d love any and all feedback on my ideas and concept map!

Thanks!
