Who are you, and what do you like to learn about? (academically, professionally, and/or personally)
I’m a 24-year-old grad student at Wheelock. I love learning about human behavior, thought processes and social issues. My undergrad degree is in psychology, so anything related to psychology is always of interest. I love to learn new dance moves, learn about different urban arts, watch documentaries and get to know new people.
What hardware do you use to learn? (Eg. smart phone, tablet, laptop, desktop)
I’m always connected to some hardware. My phone is always by my side. I use a desktop for work everyday and a laptop for school work. I also use my iPad to stream to my Chromecast when I’m home watching Netflix and chillin’.
What software do you use to learn? (Eg. search engines, mobile apps, social networks, eBooks, digital libraries, wikis, blogs, videos, podcasts)
I’m pretty active on social media, as well as reading my eBooks and following a few blogs.
What digital tools do you wish you had access to for learning? (Eg. any graphic organizers, mind-mapping tools, resource management tools, progress tracking tools, design tools, etc.) Why?
What might your ideal Personal Learning Environment (PLE) look like?
A classroom with interaction to my professor and my classmates but also a lightweight, personal tech gadget (like an iPad) that I can access my readings and chapters on for class discussion. (Hey, books are heavy.)
