What do You Like Best About Technology?

My favorite part of technology is designing solutions to the situations that my teacher provides. I have fun working on projects and actively developing the skill I learn in technology. I enjoy problem-solving and getting my hands dirty rather than listening to my teachers teach us about the topic as I find it gets tiresome and boring (though that is a necessary part of a class). I also often find that I learn better by discovering things for myself and exploring the topic before I am told how it works and what to do. Furthermore working and using technology to do projects such as game design is often tedious and problematic and I find it less pleasant. Technology is a fundamental part of our modern day world and in technology class, we learn many important skills; my personal favorite is learning how to problem solve and design a physical solution to a situation that my teacher provides.

How Do You Learn Best in School?

I am a visual learner meaning I learn best by seeing things whether that means I have to read a text or see a picture. If a teacher were to only explain a topic using words, orally I would only retain some of the knowledge but may fail to remember some points. However, if the teacher were to explain the topic using visual aids such as a slideshow, I would retain more to the knowledge that if there were no visual aids. I also find it helpful if a slideshow or a document that was used during class, is posted on classroom so we can refer back to it when studying for a test or quiz. Take notes by hand during class helps me to remember the information better and I can then review my notes when studying. Furthermore, I learn best when I am comfortable in my area meaning the room is the right temperature, not too nosy and I am in a comfortable sitting position.
