Working Towards a Journey of Learning
Because I am starting with the Cricut machine purchased by the school, I first had to take down the boxes off of the shelf and reorganize all of them. I mean, it’s great we have the tools and some supplies, but the Amazon box used as an organizer isn’t quite hacking it for me. So, because I am who I am and love all things organized (minus I’m falling real short in that department at home and in my car lately), I started to look online for better organizational options. I started first with Amazon (full credit to the box inspiration) and of course, found an endless amount of options. Let’s be honest, I should have known better, but I was still shocked by the sheer number of items available to organize all things Cricut. And if you didn’t think that was enough, check out Pinterest for even more ideas here! Anyways, one thing led to another and I eventually asked the principal if there was in fact a budget for an expense such as that one… he’s still getting back to me (I wonder why… ha!).
Exploring a ‘New’ Social Media Tool
A Little Taste of Honesty
Okay, I was five seconds away from giving into signing up for an account that just weeks ago I was adamant about not embarking on. Yes… when given this blog prompt the only thing I could think of was one of two things that I couldn’t imagine ever doing. What is it you might ask? Signing up for TikTok. I even thought about using a friend’s account to explore it for the purpose of this assignment and then vowing to never admit it or for certain at least never talking about it ever again in my lifetime. Quick update though, I see that Leigh has given in to signing up for TikTok, and now I’m wondering if I’m making a mistake. But after coming across A Taste of Honesty and nearly peeing my pants from laughter (probably a combination of TMI and definitely being way overtired right now) I realized that I’m not ready for it quite yet. I mean, it’s probably an amazing tool for learning about all of the things or filling an incredible amount of time that I clearly don’t have but it’s something that I am still going to hold off on for now. However, if you really want full disclosure, I will probably use it for my learning project without signing up for it, and then still continue to be in full denial about it. Anyways, I should probably refocus my energy back to where I was intending to go with this post.
An Introduction to My Digital Learning Project
The Story that Took Me Here
Okay, before I get into the heart of my post, I want to start with a story. You’re probably already thinking, “gosh, not another story from this gal!” or “another long-winded story coming our way” but I promise, it has something to do with my project. Anyways, like many of my posts, this one is going to be a long one. So, sit back, grab your favourite beverage (I’m not judging one bit if it’s an adult beverage), a snack of choice, and come along for a ride.
