Blog Post #13
The purpose of this blog post was to give a reflection of how it was going 24 hours without using technology. For me, it was very hard. The main thing that I had a problem not being able to use was my cell phone. I live four hours from home and I always have my phone with me. I never know if something is going to happen or if my family may have a emergency and need to contact me. Also, I am a nanny for 2 children in Fairhope after school and not being able to communicate on the phone with their parents made it hard for me to find out what days I had to work or what the children had planned for that week. Going without the television was not particularly that hard for me. I am a type of person that can go without watching television. I find that I can accomplish more if I do not have the temptation of watching the television.
I believe that going 24 hours without using technology was a hard thing for me to do but it did make me realize how I do not spend time for myself or the time that I should for homework and/or studying that I need. In my future classroom, students will be allowed to use some technology for some classroom assignments or projects, but the whole classroom by no means will be ALL technology composed.
