Hello there! My name is Kyla Wolfe. I am a pre-k to grade five elementary education student at the University of Regina. I am currently in my fourth year of the program, which means that after I finish up two spring classes and go to my internship in the fall I will be done. This is very scary, but very exciting.
I am really looking forward to bringing technology into my internship and future classrooms. However, I am not a tech wiz yet. Through this class I feel as though I am going to build a solid knowledge base about technology that will be a wonderful asset. I think one important aspect about technology I am wanting to learn is a basis on how to teach students how to be safe and properly use the internet. With social media and the craziness of the internet, I believe that it can be dangerous and learning how to be safe is extremely important. Speaking from my own experience, I am not one to normally post much on social media besides a few pictures here and there. I am much more of a lurker than a poster. I currently have all my account settings up high and did not think of using my social media pages to reflect my self as a professional. This class has already changed my perspective on how I should be using technology and connections to my advantage.
Through this class I am expanding my educational twitter account to show personal growth with technology and as an educator. I recently retweeted an interesting article about digital literacy. If you are interested in learning about using technology to our advantage and teaching our students to properly use it, you can find it here.
