This week we studied the many connections between school, the "real world" and the internet. I learned a great deal from my colleagues in the Storify stories about the pros and cons of cloud based learning. I have a heightened awareness of security measures and considerations that occur around international sharing of cyber information. The RAS Animate Re-Imagining Work video inspired me to think about the changing face of the workplace "environment".
I have decided to do my Storify on the topic of school internships. I thought about the ideas of John Dewey and experiential education on several occasions this week. In my personal experience I was able to complete a 1 month internship as a sophomore at Skidmore College. The experience was invaluable. I thought I wanted to go public relations and after a month working at GMAC in New York I realized that the field was not for me.
