Goodbye my EDTC Friends, ​see you in Sask Ed Chat!

I can’t believe that as I sit down I am sitting down to write one of the last assignment for my degree.  It’s astonishing that after 4 years I can finally see an end.

That being said, let’s not forget that these last 4 years were hard work and this semester was no cake walk! ERDG required quite a bit of discipline to remember to tweet daily, blog weekly and comment regularly.

In the final blog post, I will talk a little bit about my journey through this semester!

Twitter:

Twitter has been a great platform for me to grow my PLN, and it has introduced me to many great people! One of the coolest things I learned about twitter was #twitterchats and how using tweet deck makes #twitterchats so much easier to follow.   Throughout the semester I gained many new followers and hope that as time moves on I will grow my following as I move on to the next phase of my life as an educator.  Screen Shot 2018-04-17 at 10.14.03 PM.png

I was able to use Twitter to share my blogs, my thoughts and some great tips I came across.  I used Twitter to stay current and connect with some great teachers.

Blogging: 

Blogging proved to be some of my favourite parts of this entire class.  I really liked reading my fellow classmates’ blogs, especially my besties who were learning Africans and were creating delicious food that I loved to sample.   Watch out for my cameo experiences in both!  I loved commenting on what I thought when I read other peoples blogs too.

Here are some of the comments I left!

This isn’t every comment I made but rather just a little sampling.

I really loved having Miss. Stoyko comment on my blogs! Lots of her comments were encouraging and I knew I could always count on her to leave me a comment.  I found people’s comments to be very encouraging and I always looked forward to hearing from others!

I found each week I looked forward to responding to the questions posed and learned a lot about my own thoughts and ideas in relation to what I had learned, we well as what others had gotten from the same articles and ideas.

When posed with the question;

What did you contribute to the learning of others?

I think I can say, I contributed in many ways.  I regularly tweeted, commented and blogged about my journey and in response to the journey of others.  I made cameo appearances in my friends’ blog posts and most importantly I pushed myself to go beyond my comfort zone and try new apps, new ways to take videos and new ways to incorporate technology and for that, I think I’m all the better off.

I am very glad I chose to take this class and I cannot wait to use everything I’ve learned in my future classrooms.  Technology is the future and I am just glad I’ve hopped on the tech train and learned how to steer it.

 

For the last time,

#Edtc300
