ENTRY 14: REFLECTION ON MY PORTFOLIO
My portfolio was a very important element that helped me a lot because I have learnt many things from it. One of the thing was to improve the management of technology: I have managed to create a blog, to upload videos, to embed files and documents, to link to different sites, and so on. I could also practise to use different computer programmes as Power Point, Word, etc., as well as the use of platforms like Slideshare, Issuu, or Google Drive. I have known and suscribed to some websites that will be useful for my students too. As regard to my learning process, this portfolio contributed to have a record of all the material I have read and studied, by writing summaries, doing analysis of texts, etc. All the entries were interesting but the most I liked were the videos because they have facilitated the comprehension of theory. Moreover, the portfolio will help to study for the final exam as I have at hand all the work made during this course. In conclusion, I may say that the portfolio is practical, useful and a good idea to implement in schools or to organize a course.
ENTRY 13: REFLECTION ON MY WRITING SKILL
Definitively, I can say that I have improved my writing skill. First of all, I did not know how to write an essay but this year I have learnt to, for example, how to develop paragraphs through analizing different examples of them with the theory, which was crucial to know the different kinds of paragraphs within an essay. In addition, the framework of the essay was another important thing I have learnt; for instance, how to state the thesis, introduce the topic and expose the arguments that support the ideas, or to conclude it. The material provided was important not only to do cohesive and coherent jobs but also to teach our students to write, regarding the approaches we have learnt. Although I am aware that I must continue studying language, I feel that it is another area which has been improved as well. Therefore, I am sure that, on balance, this year was good, my writing capacity has changed and my writing skill has been developed.
