Asynchronous or Synchronous
I think I benefit from asynchronous and synchronous learning. Asynchronous learning fits my busy schedule better. I am very busy in the evenings due to football season. Practice in the evenings and games on Thursday nights. I also use the evenings for reading and answering emails which keep me busy for a good while. Then there are the papers that I need to grade. I really do not need to explain this, as teachers we all need time for this time consuming task. This is why asynchronous learning fits me the best. Now as for synchronous learning, I do enjoy this. It gives me the chance to see different perspectives on the content area that we are learning. Sometimes I get tunnel vision and it hard for me to expand or see other ideas. Synchronous learning helps me to accomplish this by everyone sharing more than one idea about a particular subject.
