During the past week we had a very emotional trip down our ICT4RED memory lane while doing our last ICT4RED Module, aptly named, Reflection. We have so much to reflect on. Not only did we immerse ourselves in the nitty gritty practical implications of learner based teaching strategies, but we also formed strong bonds of camaraderie and learning networks.
Module 10 is a time for looking back and evaluating what we have learned, how it has impacted on our classroom practice and how we can take it forward. It is also a time for celebrating our success. At the end of every module we took time out to reflect:
Some of the comments from the teachers during the week:
