What new insights have you obtained about at-risk children and families overall?

In this final discussion, reflect upon your overall learning experience and relate it to your earned specialization and/or advanced degree as well as your current or future practice serving at-risk children and families. Your reflection must include the learning you have gained about the topics of this course and learning from the creation of your website. Review the Week Six Instructor Guidance to further support your response to this discussion. You may respond to this discussion in written form, or through a video and/or audio recording of yourself using the digital technology of your choosing.

Initial Post: Create an initial post that addresses the following:

What new insights have you obtained about at-risk children and families overall?
What specific concepts have you learned that have left a more lasting impression or impact on you? How and/or why have these concepts impacted you more significantly than others?
What affirmations have you gained about your current or future role working with at-risk children and families from reflecting on your learning? Be sure to indicate what your professional focus is (e.g., education, early childhood education, family and community service, etc.).
How has the construction and review of others’ websites added value to your learning experience? Include challenges you may have experienced during the process and how you overcame them.

Creating a Web-Based Resource for a Population At-Risk

Throughout this course, you have had the opportunity to examine various populations at risk and learn about strategies and resources to support these groups. You have reviewed many websites that offer services for a variety of populations at risk as well, which have hopefully served as models for your website that is finalized for this Final Project. In the Final Project, you will demonstrate mastery of the five course learning outcomes by completing the website resource you have been designing throughout the course that describes what you learned about children and families at risk as well as a specific population you selected as a focus during Week Five. Additionally, the website you create here may be an effective artifact to include in your MAED program eportfolio during your enrollment in the Capstone, EDU695, and will likely be useful to you as a resource for future professional work with your chosen population at risk from this project.
