digital learning reflection

I found digital learning a lot harder than being in an actual school for 6 hours 5 days a week. There are way too many distractions and hard to  get rid of because of temptation. I dislike it because I feel it takes me way too long to do an assignment or stay on task. Honestly, I don’t think it really has other than communicating with friends for help when needed. I have been starting to cite my resources more and more because I’m either using textbooks or on a website for more information or for more information. Up until maybe early may digital learning caused me hours of homework due to my phone which was very hard to put down. It also caused me to talk less with friends because were not stuck in a class together. Instead I got closer with people I’m already close with. One core competency that I improved on is creative thinking. I improved on this by creating a game that’s not school related due to quarantine sock net and was in a very intense game with my cousin. I also found out ways to keep myself on track when I knew I started to slack because of my phone. I put myself in my parents office in the basement the quietist room in the house which helped finish homework around late May giving me more free time. Communication helped me because I did miss out on the first week and friends told me what happened or what’s going to happen. Classmates also helped out when there were no calls up yet or if there was class that day which was helpful since I kept missing socials class.
