EDCI 336 Summary

jiswwThis is me now. This term, I have been working towards connected, open learning, and these are some of the things that have done along the way:

  • Blogging
  • Tweeting
    • Participating in Twitter chats
      • I connected with other student-teachers through #BCStuTeach.
      • I connected with educators across British Columbia through #BCEdChat.
      • I also tried out #EdChat and #TeacherFriends to connect with a wider range of educators.
    • I facilitated #edci336chat, using what I learned about Twitter chats through participation and asking members of my PLN.
    • This term, I have been tweeting out highlights from what I have been doing in classes and workshops
      • Conferences
      • I have learned, been inspired, and expanded by PLN through this process.
  • Creating STEM Puns cartoons, and sharing them
  • Using Google docs
  • Using Storify to curate
  • Started using Evernote
    • Keeping track of resources
  • Started listening to podcasts, such as Invisibilia
  • Started listening to Audiobooks on Overdrive.
  • Throughout the term, I answered tech questions from my classmates, particularly about Twitter and Storify.
  • Through Twitter, I connected with the Royal BC Museum. Because they saw my interests in science outreach expressed on Twitter, they approached me with a project idea. I am now collaborating (using Trello) with them on an outreach project about species at risk that uses comic-making. For this project, I have been able to share one of the tech tools that I found out about this term. The plan is to share the ideas generated on the museum portal. Stay tuned!

Will I continue to blog, tweet, and stay connected throughout my career? Tech yeah!

I am a French Immersion teacher fuelled by chocolate, leopard print, and family & friends. I love sharing and hearing new ideas.
