Ed Tech 501: Bumper Sticker & Final Reflection

My bumper-sticker reflects my transformation in this course.  When I started Ed Tech 501, I was a total novice!  I knew virtually nothing about technology and even less about it’s applications in the world of education.  There was a lot of frustration and tears throughout this course.  I spent countless hours, especially in the beginning, yelling at the computer.  But as I mastered one skill after another my confidence grew strong and my frustrations weakened.  I learned so many things that I will carry with me throughout this program.  Most importantly, I learned that I can do it!

AECT Standards:

2.4 Integrated Technologies
Integrated technologies are ways to produce and deliver materials which encompass several forms of media under the control of a computer

About kimberlyhefty

Hello. My name is Kimberly Hefty and I live in Sammamish, Washington. For the past 23 years I have taught high school and college level mathematics. 13 years ago I started a private tutoring business. I specialize in working with public high school students who are taking math courses "on-line". I work closely with both the students and the local school district. I typically work with 40-50 students per week. I also have 2 children ages 14 and 23. My daughter just graduated from Elon University in North Carolina. My son plays competitive golf and premiere soccer so most of my weekends are spent at either soccer or golf tournaments. I am excited to be completing the Master's In Educational Technology Program from BSU (M.E.T.) Spring 2015! Through this program I have gained a better understanding of educational technology and it’s applications. I believe that the knowledge that I have gained will be beneficial personally, as well as to my students. With these skills that I have learned in the Educational Technology program, I hope to help myself and my students be successful in future endeavors. The M.E.T. program has allowed me to create an environment for all of us, my students along with myself, to gain skills for education, employment, and existence.
