“Wisdom Begins With Wonder” Socrates.
I am sure that I am not the only one, but I’m sure many other students who embarked on the wonderful degree in Education brought together an entire baggage of emotions filled with happiness and success but I’m sure that worries were part of it.
Blogs, wait a second… “I’ve never shared very much online.”
What should I write ?
How will it read ?
Does it make any sense ?
The first few weeks on University came to me as a surprise, along with many really interesting and wonderful aspects. Yet, one aspect which was worrying me was our own blog sites. Coming in with very little experience of writing and sharing my views with others was not something which I was familiar with. Especially only where so many people could be able to see it.
To start of with I was very reluctant to post anything online especially as I did not who I am sharing it and how they would perceive it as. I would sit and try and think of ideas but I was very much like this.
No ideas ! No creativity ! No enthusiasm !
Now, semester one is over and I just cannot believe the self confidence which I have gained, which pushes me to want to write, to communicate and develop professional dialogues.
Here are a few words which express how I feel now.
I feel that I have started to get into having a sense of collaborative work, peer assessment and reflection in place which allows me to see when and how I can develop.
This is a very inspirational quote which allows me to reflect and look into how I can reflect as professional. An integral part of the GTCS standards which demonstrates that a professional is one who dedicates themselves to professional learning and development.
This is a diagram which leave’s you with some interesting areas in which you can see and develop yourselves,
I have started off by showing my steps of development:
Start using references to CfE and GTCS;
Add extra reading and references.
Please feel free to give me any feedback on how I can improve….
