This week I am working on my first assignment - My First Memory of Educational Technology. Working on this assignment was an “eye-opening” experience: I realized that I had not really been exposed to Educational Technology during either my primary schooling or higher education (in Russia.) I could not recall a single instance when a teacher would use a video, an overhead projector, or a TV to support instruction, not to mention the Internet or any type of a computer. In fact, computers had not been in use until my third year in university (approximately 1997-1998.) I can recall those lessons in Information Technology – the professor would teach us about the World Wide Web or what a URL looked like and was for using only a chalk and a chalkboard – and we had no idea what he was talking about. Now, looking back, I believe I was curious enough about the subject, if I still remember the lesson. Another interesting point - we had to write down everything the professor taught about those www., http, and URLs, and then report it all back on the exam, without having tried or seen a real computer and working with URLs.
