Learning Project Wrapped.. For Real This Time

Learning Project Wrapped.. For Real This Time

Over the past few months, I have been working on learning French. I am excited to say that I have successfully completed 3 units on Duolingo and I am now in the Emerald League. There are competitions among all Duolingo users and there are 10 different leagues you can compete in based on how well you are doing (measured by how many XP you have). I currently have 152 XP for the week and am in 1st place of the…

First of all, I hope you get my title but if you don’t, let me explain. Duolingo’s icon is an owl and owls say whooooo. Duolingo created their own version to show your year in review much like Spotify does with it’s infamous “Spotify Wrapped”. Ok now that you’re all done laughing at my hilarious title, please enjoy the screenshots below of my “Duolingo Year In Review”. So here I am telling the world how much I learned this year…

Summary of Personal Learning

Summary of Personal Learning

Hi y’all!! Here is my Summary of Personal Learning. I am very happy to say that I used Canva’s “present and record” feature for the first time during this and I found it very easy to use. One downside to it is that if you mess up, you have to start recording all over again so I ended up doing it about 5 times before I got it right. I also noticed there was a spelling error in one of…

If It Wasn’t for Duo…

If It Wasn’t for Duo…

To be honest, I haven’t really been keeping up with my learning project this week. The only thing that has been keeping me going this week has been Duolingo. Not wanting to lose my streak has been what has kept me motivated to keep learning each day. Most days, I have been so busy during the day that I only remember to do it right before bed so I don’t spend much time on it. For a couple days over…

Are You Coding Me?

Are you kidding me? This was so much fun!! I completed the Hour of Code T-Rex Game on Code.org and had a blast creating my own T-rex game.

You Can’t Keep Kids Offline So Keep Them Safe Online

You Can’t Keep Kids Offline So Keep Them Safe Online

I personally do not remember how cyber safety was approached in my own school. I don’t remember any teacher having conversations with us about how to be safe online. I definitely had these conversations with my parents and they scared me to be safe for sure. I was scared to post anything because they said people would be able to figure out where I live. They also warned me to add random strangers on any social media site. Being the…

Wesch Direction is Technology Taking Us?

Wesch Direction is Technology Taking Us?

As an educator, I realize that technology can benefit us in many ways. For example, having a blackboard(introduced in the 1840s), which is now a whiteboard and a laptop (introduces in the 1970s/80s) to use are things that we take very for granted now but weren’t always tools that teachers had access to. It is also important to consider how technology has changed the way we communicate with others and it can impact the relationships we have. Social media has…

Expanding my Horizons

Expanding my Horizons

This week I continued on my Duolingo journey, while also watching some YouTube videos as well. I am now on day 21 of my Duolingo streak and I am still on section 1, Unit 2. I am feeling like I am very behind but I do know that I have learned a lot already and I am proud of myself. It isn’t easy to learn a new language and I think I expected to pick it up a lot quicker…
