    How far has technology really come?

    I believe that I am one of the many people that feels they grew up alongside technology. All photos of me from birth to age five are developed and stored in a bin, and all videos are on tapes from our oldest video camera. Then after age five all photos and videos simply became virtual. To me this is very scary. All the photos that are developed are easy to find, but can get damaged easily and may never be found again. On the other hand, all photos that are virtual may get lost easier and can be disappear with one click of a button. When I was growing up…

    Using new apps to ✨enhance✨ learning

    When choosing an application I have never used before, that is not only a tool, but will enhance learning for others and myself I choose iMovie, Crello, and Lapseit. I chose more than one because to create what I wanted with Crello, I first needed to make a video using iMovie. I also chose Lapseit because I thought it was a great way to document myself actually beading necklaces, without being twenty minutes long. iMovie is a very standard video editing software application, compatible with only MacOS. Click here for a beginners guide to using iMovie. iMovie has many great features such as: Creating movies or trailers Available on Mac…

    More and More Necklaces

    I have been very busy with my small business and learning project this past week, SO. MANY. NECKLACES 😍. My best friends have to be one of my biggest supporters of this business, all four of them want five necklaces each, plus I’m getting orders from other friends, and even people in Alberta and B.C.! How crazy 😲! I did not expect to even get this many orders, but I hope my business continues to grow! I happen to work at a restaurant 🍔 here in Regina, so we’ve been closed for some time, which gave me lots of time to work on necklaces. We open back up today (if…

    Tweeting and Twitter 🐦

    As a part of EDTC 300 we were required to create a Twitter 🐦 account and post on it daily. At first, I was skeptical about Twitter 🐦 as I had seen people use it but had never gotten it myself. As I made my account I was sure to have a photo of myself as my profile picture, and wrote a bio that was professional and described myself clearly 📝. I started to follow some educational people and accounts so that the things these accounts posted or retweeted would show up on my feed. I really enjoyed participating in #SaskEdChat as it was not only educational 📖, but also…

    How have I never known about Feedly?

    In my EDTC 300 class I was introduced to Feedly, an RSS reader. I started by searching things I am interested in such as ‘education’👩🏻‍🏫, ‘technology’💻, ‘children’👶, ‘learning’📖, and even ‘jewelry’💎! I was amazed by how many resources there were, and read the description under each source to get an idea of what the source and things they post may be about. They were a few sources in which I was not interested in the descriptions so therefore I did not follow those. I found many great education and technology sources such as “Educational Technology“, “Free Technology for Teachers“, “TED-ED“, “Childhood101“, and “A-Z Kids Stuff- Educational Ideas and Activities for…

    Hello, my name is..

    Catchy title hey? I hope you sung it as you read it! 😂 Anyways, nice to meet you, my name is Paige Karol and I am in my second year of the PreK-5 Elementary Education program at the University of Regina 👩🏻‍🏫. I cannot wait to be a teacher for so many reasons! In our first year of Education or “teacher training”, many educators stressed the questions “When did you first realize you wanted to be a teacher?” , “Who inspired you to want to be a teacher?”. Everyone always seemed to have different answers to these questions but many people explained that a teacher from their past had made…

    Always looking for a hobby

    As the title states, I am always looking for a new hobby. By having a hobby I am passionate about I am able to use my free time to do this, and usually is a great stress reliever for me. I have tried many different sports and hobbies throughout my life but can never find anything that actually sticks. Here is an exhausted list of sports I’ve tried; soccer⚽️, volleyball🏐, badminton🏸, cheerleading📣, hockey🏒… you get the point haha. I have found recently that I don’t exactly need to do a sport as I am not sure I am very coordinated that way, but I just want to be ‘fit’. I…
