So, this post will be all about myself. You’re welcome!
My name is Harvey and I am currently in the Arts Education program at the University of Regina Education Department. I am an after degree student as I currently hold a B/A in English from the U of R. I have lived in England and in Tokyo, Japan where I was employed as a classroom teacher for English as an Additional Language.
My engagement with technology has been somewhat limited thus far. This is my first blog and, aside from my interaction on Facebook, have not made use of much social media. However, as the web 2.0 has been touted as the most wide spread form of democratization ever, I am eager to build an online identity for professional development and networking.
As a prospective English teacher, I feel technology is of great relevance to the writing process. Blogging is one of the best ways to have students engage with creating text, and I plan to incorporate it as much as possible.
As far as my expectation of this class, I am looking forward to learning heaps about what is available to me and my future students. And so far, this class has been doing just that!
Thanks for listening! Will write again soon!
