Reflecting on Module 6

I enjoyed this Module, but it was difficult to find time to do it. I seem to have a lot of stuff piling up on me, but I am not surprised. This is the home stretch for this year of our courses. We are almost done! And I can’t believe how much time has passed and how much we, as a class, have accomplished. I am not surprised if any of us feel that there is still a lot more to learn though, because I feel that, when we decided to become teachers, a part of us decided to become life-long learners as well.

We hold a passion for learning and helping others learn that it is ingrained in us.

It becomes who we are.

It is like an all-you-can-eat buffet for a great price – you just can’t pass it up, and you once you start, you just can’t stop.

If you haven’t done it already, check out the post I added on my Inspiration Corner Page that includes more quotes about teachers.

Working with Module 5: My Reflection

I really enjoyed this Module, especially after the topics we covered topics like cyber-bullying and netiquette. It was nice to almost dial it back, in a sense.

I really enjoyed coming up with our own online learning experiences. I think that if we are going to be teachers, this is this kind of thing we need to get used to – creating lesson plans/activities for our students. I hope my lesson plan was done properly.

I also feel that when we had to find an article of our choice, I enjoyed it. We got to share something that we thought was valuable. I found myself looking at different websites and seeing what they had to say.

Another thing I really enjoyed these last couple weeks, was the Twitter discussion I participated in. Once I got the hang of it, I had fun. The people who participated were so nice and helpful. One person even told me where the discussion questions were coming from. I didn’t realize how Twitter could be used in this fashion.

Anyways, on to another topic: I am feeling excited that we are getting closer to finishing our semester, but I like this class so much that I don’t want it to end. I enjoyed the tasks we’ve done, and the new things we’ve learned. I like the blog that I created – I may even keep it going after this class is done.

A Journey Through Module 4

All the content we covered in Module 4 made me think of some of the works of Barbara Coloroso and Shane Koyczan, and I really couldn’t help but feel excited about it. I will be posting some of the stuff I have found onto my “Inspiration Corner” page as soon as I can get it organized and all that jazz. I can’t wait! I have been wanting to share some of this stuff for awhile now, but I didn’t know if I should or if I had the time, but I feel like this is the right time.

Now that we have gone through Module 4, I am starting to feel like the questions I have had regarding internet safety are beginning to be answered. I realize now that the answers are within us, all of us, working together to make change happen. “Be the Change,” Gandhi once said. As it was stated in Sasktel’s, I Am Stronger Video, “Things need to change, and the time is now.” I feel we are more than capable of that change, as long as we continue to look out for each others’ and our own safety.

With all that being said, I, for one, feel like I have just had an epiphany of sorts. I feel like something just clicked for me when I was looking through this information and It’s got me excited. Honestly, I’m excited. I can’t wait to share some of the stuff I found, and I’m going to do my best to post them up as quickly as possible.

What to do for my Final Project?

I have been asking myself this question for some time now. This decision was hard for me to make, since it is a project that we will have until April to complete. I was trying to think of things that will fit the timeline, be easy to follow, and is connected to the curriculum.

I have pretty much narrowed my decision down to

(drum roll, please)

the Recorder!.

We are taking a music class this semester, and we are learning how to play (and teach) the Recorder, and I think this would be a great thing to document, since it is the first instrument I have actually started to play. I want to include pictures, tips, videos, etc. that relate to playing the recorder, and all the fun things I hope I will come to learn.

I think that this will be an exciting experience, and I can’t wait to get started!

Who’s excited for Module 2?! :D

I am! I can not wait to get started on our tasks for Module 2. I look forward to updating my blog with a new page for reflecting, and I will also be adding a tutorial video for how to use a Google app – I will choose which app at a later date. I hope that this upcoming video will be simple, easy to understand, and enjoyable.

Thanks again for joining.
