Week nine asked students to think about their biggest fears and challenges that they may have leading up to professional placement. When reflecting on this question my biggest fear I currently have is that I will be terrible at teaching!! I say this, as this will be my first professional placement in a school setting! Even though I have worked with children aged 0-5 for the past 13 years, I am still feeling extremely nervous. A fellow student blogged about their fears and concerns leading up to their professional placement, regarding embedding ICTs and how to keep up with the workload. Alike my fellow blogger, I too am feeling extremely anxious about embedding ICT into my lesson plans and the workload that will be expected. Up until commencing this subject, I had very rarely embedded the use of ICTs in my lesson designs, nor have I had much luck in using them myself. I am very concerned that I will have many failures and/ or not include enough ICTs that will successfully transform students learning. During prac I will also have a 60% assignment due for another subject, as well as still required to take on roles in my workplace and manage being a single mum. To top it off I will be completing my professional placement 50km away, eek, I am certain that I will end up beyond exhausted! To ensure that my fears and concerns wont be as big of an issue, I have decided to set myself many goals and a schedule prior to commencement to help with the workload, and will continue to reflect on my choices of ICTs I use.
