Describe your personal learning preferences (1 paragraph, 100-150
At the beginning of the class my learning style results were REF (3),
SEN (1), VIS (9), and SEQ (3). After this test I really took into
consideration how I could use these results to help me study. By the end
of class I realized that these learning styles really do help me to learn
better. Although it is still hard at times, but know how information may
appeal to my interest has been very beneficial. My preferences for
learning has still a bit of a journey but along the semester thinking how
these styles can help me have pulled me through this long semester.
Knowing how I am able to help myself has enhanced my learning.
Describe the learning pathway you chose at the beginning of the
class (1 paragraph, 100-200 words)
For this section I believe I did join Learning Sage pathway because the
time we are in really require us to know how to use technology. It is a
important factor for work, business, and entertainment. I wasn’t sure how
to use the pathway very well during the semester and wasn’t able to use it
to my fullest potential but from what I did use I can say it was very useful. I
did get a broader knowledge of mobile technology. I’m sure I was quite
unsuccessful compared to my peers in this class but I tried to do my best
and it was very beneficial for what I was able to accomplish.
Describe how the activities you completed contributed or did not
contribute to your learning pathway (1 paragraph, 100-200 words)
For me specifically I would have to say that the iPod and MP#
players were very beneficial. I am able to use something that is portable
which allows me to transport it with me without difficulty. I am able to
upload pictures and diagrams and view them for as long as I want or as
many times as I wish. That also goes for audio logs that I wish to repeat to
myself and get a better understanding of what is being said each time it
repeats. I am not much of an audio learner so being able to repeat
something is very helpful. Using the iPod helped with my visual and
sequential learning and allowed me to get a better understanding of the
material. My iPhone that I got within the semester and the iPod I had were
very beneficial to my learning.
1.Using one paragraph each, describe the top 3 mobile technologies
you explored for learning (3 paragraphs, 100-150 words each)
The iPod, tablets, and microblogs were a few technologies that I
2. explored to help me with my learning that would enhance my learning
styles. I own an iPod and tried to upload lectures and well as audio logs
that I would be able to view as many times as I wished throughout the day.
I borrowed my friend’s tablets to look up information and complete my work
at times and I also used microblogs that had to do with the topic I had to
review in order to help me get a better understanding of my topic at hand.
All these technologies were very beneficial in their own way. I was able to
use each one for a different preference for my learning comprehension. I
was able to view pictures and diagrams as many times as I wished. I was
also able to look up information that was not available during the teachers
presentation and if I missed a lecture I was able to do my own research
and teach myself in a sequential order that fit my learning preference.
Synthesize your experience investigating your use of different mobile
technologies for learning (2 paragraphs, 100-150 words each)
I would have to say the iPod/iPhone has been the most interesting me as
a learning tool. I was never aware of all the available apps/programs that
assisted me to my learning preferences. I was quite shocked that my iPod
was able to do more then just play music. I was unaware I was able to
upload audio logs and pictures of lectures onto my iPod/IPhone. I still
would like to do a bit more research into iPhones/iPads. I soon hope to
own an iPad and wish to use it to its fullest capability.
I would say that the iPod really did help me with my learning. As I said in
the previous paragraphs it allowed me to view things as many times as I
wished which allowed me to use my visual side of learning but since I am
not very good with my audio side of learning it helped me by being able to
listen to audio logs as many times as I wished to.
2.Describe how you will use what you learned in this class after this
semester (2 paragraphs, 100-150 words)
Over all I really hope to use my iPhone /iPod to continue with my
learning. It has helped me this far into the semester and hope to help me
in other parts of my life. I currently work at the pet hospital and am training
to be a pet nurse and hope to use this mobile learning to learn all the
medical applications that will help me to become a better nurse. With all
the medications and the causes of diseases and the outcome that can
benefit the pet starts to become a long list and this new way of learning will
help me to further my education.
I will probably stay away from social networking because I end up
getting sucked into the social/entertaining parts that have nothing to do
with my learning. Although it can help me with my learning it still has the
part of socializing that I can’t seem to stay away from.
