When I went to college, I started off with an Educational Technology class as well as began learning how to use Blackboard. I adapted quickly to the courses. I remember at that point I didn't feel like I was ahead of the game, but I was holding my own for sure. As I continued my through my degree program, I learned more about technology. I become very comfortable in Microsoft Office programs. I student taught during my last semester in college. It was the most liberating part of my entire technology life.

I share this tale with you to encourage you that everyone has to have a technology first. Each time we try something new, it's a first that furthers our knowledge. I find that often times we are scared of technology but more so scared to "break" something. You can't get better and more comfortable without first stepping out there and trying something new.
