Week 1 – Self-introduction
My name is Shuichiro (Shu) Takeda from Quebec City. I am originally from Japan.
I started the online masters program in Educational Technology at University of British Columbia this month. Before I started this MET course, I googled “educational technology” and found several websites that showed definitions of this term. However, the word “technology” confused me (I knew it was not only about the Internet or computers, but couldn’t think of other good interpretations) and I felt I could not really put my finger on it. I just vaguely assumed that educational technology was how to use new methodologies to improve the performance of learners.
I am looking forward to my journey through this program!
