Is this the end? For this program, yes. For my DLL journey, it’s only beginning. But I need to start this discussion with brutal honesty. My district motivates their teachers to continue to education, by pay incentives. Our spot on the pay scale goes up and we receive salary increases, the more credits we receive. Going into the DLL program this was a huge motivator for me. While we are being honest, it was actually my main motivator. But as I’ve gone through the DLL program, there has been a shift in the main motivators.
I’ve learned so much and have been given so many tools to be able to develop an innovation plan that I am going to implement at school. I was able to expand my knowledge of digital tools and resources. This program has changed my views on a lot of things and has motivated me to make a change for the better. The awesome thing about this change is that it doesn’t just benefit me, it will also benefit everyone around me (my students, co-workers, administration). I truly feel that I have learned so much information of the digital/educational world and about myself as an educator and learner.
