Hi everyone! My name is Sarah, and I am currently in my second year of university. I am in Secondary Education with a major in math and a minor in drama. Some of my hobbies include camping, being a Girl Guide leader, and working out. I also work part-time as a cashier. Most importantly, I am super excited to get to know all of you!
I use a number of social media platforms for both personal and educational purposes including Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter of course! You can check out my Twitter feed below.
I’m super excited for this class, as EDTC 300 was one of the best university classes I have taken so far. I had so much fun in that class, and I also learned so much practical knowledge about technology and education. Three goals I have for learning in this course are:
- To learn how to use Mentimeter. I have participated in many Mentimeter quizzes before, and I think they would be a very practical and engaging classroom tool. I am really interested in learning how to make one!
- To learn how to grow a stronger Personal Learning Network (PLN) on Twitter. In EDTC 300, I thought I had created a fantastic PLN for myself. However, after the class ended and my classmates weren’t active on Twitter anymore, I felt as though as I had lost my whole network. I want to build a PLN that is strong independent from this course that will help me years down the road as an educator.
- To learn how to actually teach a lesson using technology. As a second year, I have yet to gain much experience creating lesson plans or teaching lessons. I am hoping to learn how to actually carry out a lesson plan utilizing the integration of technology.
