Our Summary of Learning!

What a long process but we made it! Leigh and I were able to do a very special Summary of Learning for both EC&I 832 and 834. Leigh was in 832 when Covid shut all classes down in 2020 (therefore did not do an SoL) and she is taking 834 right now. I am currentlyContinue reading “Our Summary of Learning!”

Final Course Prototype Submission!!!

Hello everyone! Exciting day! Here is my final course overview for my course prototype. It has been a long journey from my first post where I was mostly worried we would be going online again, so my thoughts were all over the place and did not have any flow or direction when it came toContinue reading “Final Course Prototype Submission!!!”

ECI 832 and 834 Major Project Updates

Well, it has been a very busy couple of weeks with classes, school, keeping up on marking and preparing for Student Conferences next week. Anyway! The projects are coming along nicely! I would say that my ECI834 Course Prototype is about 90% complete, with just a few things to add and tweak before the finalContinue reading “ECI 832 and 834 Major Project Updates”

My students have been working hard on their regularly scheduled programming, and I have been trying to integrate Digital Citizenship and Literacy into their daily work as often as I can. I am also taking ECI834 with Katia and we are working on creating an online course using an LMS and creating modules to helpContinue reading “ECI 832 Major Project Update”

Module #1 – ECI834 Course Creation

Hi everyone, Here is my first shot at an online course module and overview! I think there is too much content for one module, but it is hard to find a healthy balance of expectations when there are so many ideas I want to implement from the EC&I 834 course content!! Perhaps this module couldContinue reading “Module #1 – ECI834 Course Creation”

Student Collaboration and Interactions

Building off of what I learned with Alec Couros in ECI 831, I plan to incorporate blogging and reflections into my course prototype. At this point, my general idea is centred around what Dr. Valerie Irvine discussed in class about having some f2f time, asynchronous work time, and small pods of groups that can createContinue reading “Student Collaboration and Interactions”

Creating a Course Profile

I have been wracking my brain for the best subject to focus on for the digital learning course. I bounced back and forth between a digital book club/novel study, arts education semester, and finally settled on looking at Water Systems for grade 8 science as that is my upcoming unit for science. If we doContinue reading “Creating a Course Profile”
