Hello everyone and welcome to the beginning of my EDTC 300 journey. I am 21 years old and I am in my third year of the Middle Years Education program. I enjoy hiking, watching movies, and eating good food!
I have had this blog since 2018 and have been developing it for the past 3 years. That is about as far as my educational technology knowledge stretches. I am very active on social media including Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter but I have never ventured into the educational communities on these platforms.
My thoughts on blogging are very positive! I found so much information throughout my internship on various educational blogs. I feel as though there is so much value in educational blogs not only because of the knowledge they share but also the community they create. When you read other educators blogs, it makes you realize that you are not the only one facing challenges within your classroom. You also discover that coming up with 100% original content for every lesson is unrealistic and that part of being a teacher is working together and sharing our resources. In addition, being vulnerable and talking about our triumphs and shortcomings is what forces us to evolve as educators and this online platform allows this to happen consistently.
You can find me on twitter @MissLfiddler where, after and throughout this semester, I will be posting and interacting with various educational accounts as well as sharing valuable educational opinions and resources.
Do you have any social media handles you would like to share with me? I would love to interact!
