Blog Post # 13

E-Media Fast

As soon as I finish writing this post I will try for a second time to attempt this E-Media Fast. The first time almost worked but face book hit the spot. I started by turning my phone off last night before bed. That was not the hard part. It seems that my computer has been calling my name all day. My mom came home and asked me about a status online and I ran to the computer. So now I have to start all over. It is now 9:40 and my E-Media Fast starts once more. I will post again tomorrow.

Okay so I must honestly say, I did not past the test!!!! My fast lasted almost 24 hours. I slipped up around 8pm during a boring ride home. I decided to turn my cell phone on and check out Facebook. The e-media fast, at this point had totally slipped my mind. I must say this was a excellent learning experience for me. If it is this impossible for me to go 1 entire day without E-Media, how would I be able to teach a class of students without the use of technology in some way. I do not think that would work well in today's society. When one is use to the use of technology, simple things such as holding long conversations and  reading books does not hold ones attention for a long period of time, without the student's attention span decreasing.

This was an excellent project and I will try it once more!!!!


  1. I understand your difficulty with the media fast. Although, in my case, I could do without the computer for quite awhile. I actually do not have a land line or internet at home any longer (in an effort to save on bills). When it comes to my school work, I have to come to school early and stay late to get my work done. I was sick the entire week, last week, so I have quite a bit to catch up on in all my classes. I have not done blog assignment #13, but I am getting ready to work on that now. I hope you have better success for this FAST!!
