Activity 2 Journal: Check and reflect on your biases
Activity 2 asks you to reflect on your experience in Activity 1 and connect biases to that experience. For example, if you wrote that you felt a anxious that the activity you have created might not be well received by your students, you might have outcome bias. Outcome bias may exist because a class held in Collaborate Ultra had constant disruptions because of connection issues and the only option was to cut the class short. In reality however, many instructors experienced problems in synchronous classes because online courses went up 1800% in the first months of the pandemic and servers could not handle the traffic. It was not in the lack of preparation, it was something beyond our control. Feel confident with educational technology to continue your journey towards digital fluency.
Choose a bias that you feel may be hamper your ability to become digitally fluent and at least one that you feel may assist you in your journey. Include:
- what the bias is,
- your experience that connects with the bias, and
- how you might you overcome this bias.
Record these in the Activity 2 Journal by adding a new topic, "cognitive bias(es) that help/hinder my journey to digital fluency"
