Final Post – Major Project Journey

Wow, this has been quite a fantastic journey. Not only have I developed skills to share with my students and colleagues, but my knowledge base has also grown to be a confident parent, specifically in this area.

WeVideo Classroom

It was great to push in and support the middle years’ classroom and teach them how to use WeVideo and WeVideo Classroom.

I enjoyed that the students could be engaged through this platform and discover a creativeContinue reading “WeVideo Classroom”

Major Project – Let’s Keep the Conversations Going

Normalizing conversations around Digital Citizenship has become a priority throughout my personal and professional life. I am discovering how there is some common knowledge around terms such as technology, wifi, data, computer, iPad, fake news, social media, chat rooms, and online. The overarching theme, ‘digital citizenship,’ seemed missing throughout the conversations. As I discussed andContinue reading “Major Project – Let’s Keep the Conversations Going”

Major Project Update – WeVideo – Re-engaging Students

Working alongside middle years students is a new venture for me.

Trying and Teaching Technology

This past week I began teaching grades 1 and 2 about digital citizenship. This is a very broad and contextualized term for grade 1 and 2 students, so I began creating lessons and supports for both the students and teachers, in hopes that it will initiate and guide some conversations for teachers to be ableContinue reading “Trying and Teaching Technology”
