My First "Voki"

Get a Voki now!
Hi Fellow Me-L's, So far this has been a slow journey for me but each step of the way I am discovering more and more about the importance of letting students learn by experiencing things for themselves. I really feel like a 'Digital Virgin' when it comes to attempting any of the tasks for this course. Sometimes I wish I had my own personal tutor standing over me giving me prompts along the way. But I suppose practising my Habits of Mind will give me something to use for modelled teaching when I finally get into a classroom. So I will Persist, Be Accurate & seek accuracy and approach each task with an open mind. Of course it would be nice to experience a sense of comfort and order about the task once in a while but all is well that ends well (at least I hope this will end well).

Life is a continuing journey......

Hi everyone, Everyday I am discovering just how much I need to learn to keep up with my grandchild. Technology was never my forte, and now I am attempting things that I would not have thought possible 2 years ago. I am so very, very, very thankful to all those kind souls out there that have assisted me on my journey thus far. The very first activity has confirmed what I have always believed, that we need to actually 'do' something to get a fuller understanding of it. This really applies to all aspects of life, not just education. As a young child you do not learn to walk and talk without attempting these things. I am still a 'baby' when it comes to computers and all they have to offer me, so I am having heaps of fun grasping onto all the new 'worlds' available to me and those that I will one day be responsible for educating.
Back another day, off to consume my lunch.

I hope this is correct????

Well here goes nothing. I sure hope this is what I was supposed to do. For someone who loves 2 chat I have no idea what to 'chat' about so bye for now.

What to do? what to do? Now that I have started, I am almost through. If any one want to sit and 'chat', just send your message right on through.
