I previously took a course with Alec Couros, EC&I 833, last term. I was finishing up my second maternity leave and another grad course as well. I learned how to blog, tweet (I had not previously had a Twitter account ), and I learned a lot about the different educational technology that I can use in my classroom. 

My reasons for choosing this course (834) was to:

3. Keep up with the changing classroom and adapt my teaching style and comfort levels so that I can teach my students in ways that they are able to connect to, understand, and experience in the future. Who knows? Maybe my classroom will become a blended or online course in the future.

I am very excited to learn with everyone in my EC&I 834 class and have bittersweet feelings towards this being the last time, but am looking forward to what the future will bring.

  1. Congrats on this being your last and final Grad course!! I am also looking forward to learning new tools and keeping up with the times to help increase student engagement in my classroom. I think it is so important to be a role model for our students to show life-long learning, Great to learn with you this semester!!
