Who are you, and what do you like to learn about? (academically, professionally, and/or personally)
I am a Wheelock first-year student. I enjoy learning about society and humans interact. In general, I enjoy all learning situations.
What hardware do you use to learn? (Eg. smart phone, tablet, laptop, desktop)
I regularly use a laptop, library desktop, and smartphone outside the classroom for educational use. Inside the classroom, often I use tablets and projectors.
What software do you use to learn? (Eg. search engines, mobile apps, social networks, eBooks, digital libraries, wikis, blogs, videos, podcasts)
I use a variety of software to learn i.e. Microsoft products, Google, Wikipedia, EBSCOhost, the Wheelock Online Library, and Noodle Tools.
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?
At this time, I am unaware of other digital tools I would like having access to, but I am always open to trying new tools for learning.
What might your ideal Personal Learning Environment (PLE) look like?
My ideal PLE would look like a desktop computer with a free available printer nearby so as I research I can print and highlight different articles. While I use technology for all of my research and learning, I often find reading long passages difficult on a screen, and prefer to print my research and analyze a hard copy before continuing research via technology.
