The first few days…

So far I have spent the first few days of this course just connecting.  I’ve spent some time exploring our Google plus community, followed new people on Twitter, and started a new blog.  I also tried out Flipgrid for the first time.  Who knew a little ninety second video could make you so self conscious about what you say and do.  Oh well, I need to get over that because I really liked the concept of a quick recorded answer to a question that allowed me to see my classmates face to face and learn a bit about the experience they were bringing to our learning community.

Now what is really on my mind this weekend is what to do for my major digital project.  Do I want to do an instruction project? Do I want to make my learning visible?  Do I want to MOOC?  I have valid interest in them all but can’t seem to commit.  Perhaps a bit more exploring this weekend is in order to help me make some decisions…

My first blog post!

Well, here it is.  I probably haven’t blogged in five years but am really enjoying the challenge of starting up again.  I am currently enrolled in the ETAD (Educational Technology and Design) Masters of Education program at the University of Saskatchewan.  This term I got an exciting opportunity to take one of my electives from the University of Regina (EC&I 831).  This blog will be my journey through the course and beyond.

Looking forward to it!
