Summary Reflection of the Year



The most important thing I learned this year was about global collaboration. I learned that it is sometimes hard to deal with people that have different time zones and have never done anything like this before. The most interesting new technology that I learned about was the iTouch. My three favorite things that we did this year was reaction grid, making videos, and review games. I think that technology should be used everyday to improve your education. To learn your subjects better you could make review games on the internet to help you learn them better.
