I would like to think of myself as a semi-techno savy person. I've used a PC since my family first got the internet and I'm pretty sure we were the last family to get it. We were a bit behind on the times. So I know how to use a PC pretty well, but as soon as I graduated high school I bought myself a mac and I've never looked back. I love my mac and I don't think I'll ever buy a PC ever again. I love not worrying about viruses, and spyware, and what ever else goes wrong with them. Plus the mac is just so fun to use. I probably would have bought it just for photo booth anyway. I feel that I am pretty dependent on my computer for a day to day basis Which is sad, but it is my connection to the world. I don't have tv so all my information I get from friends, family, news, school is from my computer. If it broke I would probably cry.
I think I'm using Microsoft 06. I need to update!
The part of the COE mission statement that I really appreciated was
"The mission of the College of Education community is to collaboratively transform public education by preparing thoughtful educators and advancing professional practices." I currently work in a special ed class at Mission Hills High School in San Marcos, and just from having such a hands on job in the public school system, I believe that statement is critical for all educators to understand before entering the field of education. Students deserve a teacher who is great at their job, who provides the best environment for learning and is committed to their needs of the students.
