#reflection on Teachers as learners

What did I learn today? Read an article today that resonated with me here https://usergeneratededucation.wordpress.com/2015/02/15/educators-as-lead-learners/ How was it useful? It reminded me that we need to craft the experiences for our learners to suit them, not us. But also, we need to reflect on and record the steps we take when we learn something for the first time, especially if we will be teaching. It’s good to capture the thought processes we usedto help our undertanding and build it into our teaching. What thoughts came up ? We don’t often have to learn a new technology ourselve (for teaching) but when we do we should document and reflect on the process. What will I do with the information i.e. what next? Try it out with some new peice of software I am thinking of using in the class, see how I approach the learning and try to think through explaining or sharing that thought process with others. Image of the process a teacher goes through when learning
