My new Venn diagram:
This model is more similar to the TPACK model below than my original Venn diagram displayed at the bottom of this post. I stated that I am semi competent in Technological Knowledge as of right now, as there is so much out there for me to learn to feel that I am completely proficient. However, I feel a lot more experienced now than what I did in the beginning of this class.
This is the ideal TPACK model teachers want to strive to be close to.
Below is my original Venn diagram made in the beginning of class in August 2014 displaying my use of technology on a personal and professional level.
I was a little hesitant utilizing PBL for Health Education on the more personal units. I still stand by that, as I can see there might be an issue with collaboration and presenting emotional and personal topics such as mental health issues, drawing personal boundaries, and positive versus negative role models as they might vary widely between the students. However, I think utilizing PBL will be perfect for examining body structure, organs, body functions, studying various diseases including STDs, and bullying.
