Go figure, I reached another quality failure. At this point, I am actually thankful for my failures as it has brought me a new perspective. This week we were asked to created a piece of mediated writing that included pictures, videos as well as embedded links.
I was introduced to the Microsoft site, Sway, in order to complete this assignment and I was soon after greater by frustration. Being that I like the learning curve of having to explore and try things out to learn how they work I was able to mess around with the site as well as watch a tutorial video and was soon on my way.
At first though, once I have completed the writing aspect, I turned to the uploading of links and pictures and was put at a standstill. I would drag a picture to a box where it needed to go and it would magically create a whole new box and appear there instead of where I wanted it to go. This happened multiple times and it was a large process of trying new things to make it finally work.
As a teacher, I was actually able to have a positive outlook on this experience and I realized that when I was frustrated and confused I was being given the opportunity to see how my students feel when they are learning something new. It made me realize that we are all unfinished, whether we are the teacher or the student and with that comes a perpetual cycle of learning.
