Final Blog

After looking through my past posts throughout this class, I realized that I have a reoccurring theme in all of them, my history. I noticed that I usually compare the topic of the required posts to my everyday life. I feel like a majority of what we have learned in this class we can related…

Learning

As a learner, visuals work better. For this class it was a lot of hands on activities that required teaching yourself how to work certain programs etc. I struggled slightly because of this.

Final ILP

My independent learning project was to learn how to live a healthier life style.
