Final Reflection

Believe it or not! Reflecting, this semester has been one of the most challenging for me. I have encountered and dealt with multiple obstacles that come my way during past semesters, but none to the extent of this semester. Where I must make quick and selfless decisions that left me feeling extremely overwhelmed. Nevertheless, I still manage to enjoy some of my continued learning fun tools about technology. This experience has given me the will power to be determine. It is my positive outlook about my future and the people around me that continue to give me that encouragement. This course has given me a sense of hope and the willingness to push on despite my challenges.

            Some of my favorite parts of this course was me working on the mbot project. Assembling and programming the mbot was very frustrating, a great learning experience. Never mind the bit of challenge, I was still able to successfully complete the project. Another part of the course I enjoyed very much was attending and working with the adolescents on the programming projects, the determination of those young people has help me to gain the strength and motivation I needed to continue through the semester. The python projects were also a little difficult for me but satisfying once I could figure them out.

          Although my struggles seemed endless, the projects we worked on were very enlightening and rewarding. I am thankful that I did give it my best because it helped me to develop some essential skills necessary for effectively using and applying the various techniques for learning about coding and programming. This has made me aware of the need for students as well as teachers/educators to learn to code and program in computer science.

          As this is our new world to which we must be able to communicate in the language most popular. The demand for computer literate users is and will continue to be in high demand for centuries to come. So, in closing I must thank professor and my group members for the love and kind support during the semester. I have learn a lot and will be applying these skills every opportunity I get to educate people about the wonderful technology programs we work on this semester.
