Well, it’s a week late, but I’m finally introducing myself to the ETMOOC community! Honestly, I registered on a whim at the last minute, as I often do, and then felt a bit lost about where to start. I finally came to my senses and realized that a great place to start is always wherever you feel comfortable.
I am a Grade 7 Late French Immersion teacher in British Columbia who is experimenting a lot with my teaching this year. I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited, terrified, humbled or proud in my whole life. I absolutely love what I do every day and am constantly striving to instill that same sense of passion for SOMETHING in my students. I am definitely an advocate of using technology to engage students, but I think we need to spread the word that is about encouraging creativity and collaboration, not content consumption. I hope to continue building my professional learning network by participating in ETMOOC.
I’ve really been loving six word stories with my students this year, so I thought I’d share one of my own. Here’s to a few months of wonderful learning opportunities!
