This reflection was contributed as a submission for a 2 Star Badge in The Digital Teacher (Adopting)

Give a brief description of your work context and responsibilities, e.g. your teaching background, experience, type of organisation (e.g. FE college, ACL), subject/curriculum you teach/lead, your learners (skills level, any particular inclusion needs, age range of group, size of group)

What would you do differently next time?

As this was a module dealing with enhancing and developing my digital skills if I where to complete the module again I would create some kind of skills map so that I could use to ensure that the areas which were weaker could be highlighted and this would give me an area to focus upon.
