A little about me…
My name is Beige Biggins. I am predominately a middle years teacher and this is my ninth year in the profession. I am currently working on my ETAD (Educational Technology and Design) Masters of Education degree through the University of Saskatchewan.
Why do I blog?
Blogging started out for me as an assignment in my EC&I 831 course. As a requirement for the course we needed to create and keep up a professional education blog. At first I struggled with the concept of sharing so much and often felt like I had nothing read worthy to share. After taking some time to check out some education blogs as well as fellow classmates blogs I really began to see the benefit for me professionally. Blogging is a way for educators to expand their professional learning networks. It is a way to share innovative and interesting teaching methods, strategies, and resources. Most importantly it is a way to connect with each other. Teaching is a profession based around collaboration and sharing, blogging is another way we can embrace that as educators.
