I have enjoyed sharing my ideas and thoughts with other throughout my education years whether as a teacher or a student. I chose elementary education as a profession in classroom technology particularly because of many reasons. First, I think this major will help me a lot to understanding children who are the basic part of our societies. Also, I believe this major will increase my knowledge about their needs in our daily life which will eventually lead to an appearance of a new educated generation.
This major which is in particular about the technology in classroom will also develop my skills in teaching by using the newest technology in the world to create a suitable atmosphere for the children. However, since I am from a developing country, which is Saudi Arabia, and based on recent observations on the general situation of education in my country, the use of technology has become an important part of the education in our schools and universities. So, I should learn some new ways of teaching to help my country and the children to generate good educators in different fields of study.
Because of all above reasons, I have decided to pursue my education in this major to be an effective and helpful person in my society. During my experience in teaching back in Saudi Arabia for more than ( ) years, I was in a deep contact with children and I became familiar with their needs and aware about the effective ways to deliver any information to them. One of those effective ways is use of technology in classrooms which has many features that can enable the children to understanding the subjects’ materials easily and effectively.
Therefore, I believe that ( University name ) has very excellent program for this major that will develop my skills in teaching and dealing with children. Also, I hope to learn through this program how to use the technology properly in classrooms. I am interested in the study of the children behavior and how to use the technology to help them out to achieve their goals. I used to do a lot of research papers about the technology in schools and classrooms throughout my college years. I believe these papers will assist me in my new study as they helped me in my teaching experience before.
I think my experience beside those papers will give me a starting point in my future research to create new ways for teaching children by using the new technology which is thriving now back home. From an early age I have learned that working hard is an important concept and everybody should know it in order to succeed in their life and that concept is one of my personalities that make me confident about enrolling in this program. I feel optimistic about my graduate studies because I think when the person is an ambitious in the life, he or she won’t face any obstacles in their way to success and that is what I feel toward myself.
