Presenting… My Summary of Learning!
Phew, it’s done! This summary of learning has been a little challenging for a number of reasons. Firstly, I started this class very much a tech novice, so literally almost everything we did this semester was new learning for me. How can I even summarize all that up concisely?!

Project Update – Video Edition!
I was gearing myself up to write a blog update about my project, but just wasn’t feeling the writing part of it… so I tried something totally new to me and made an update using Screencastify!

I have to be honest, I’m still having mixed feelings on this topic and how it should/could be […]Continue reading

It’s been some time since I have added any updates regarding my major project… I did talk about it in this post, which I categorized as a weekly blog, but I need to get my butt in gear and share some more details! I am feeling quite behind, but in truth I think I am […]Continue reading
My Changing Views on Digital Identity
I have mentioned quite a few times already that up until this class I have had very little activity online personally, although I do use some digital strategies in my classroom. I keep a few social media accounts but very rarely actually post on them. A small part of my resistance has to do with […]Continue reading
A Safe, Savvy, & Social Major Project
I had a pretty good idea what I wanted to do for my major project prior to Dr. Mike Ribble’s guest talk in our class, but after his presentation I was able to solidify some of what was floating around in my mind and make some sort of organized plan out of it. I already […]Continue reading
