Wow. After reading this article my mind was boggled. To be honest after a semester in this course I have learned so much and how our public schools systems are really not preparing our students for the real world. I just didn't know exactly what it was or how to put my finger on the … Continue reading Introducing the Elephants in the Room.
All of our lives we have been taught certain things in a certain way. For example, in the classroom the teacher is the leader, has a wealth of knowledge, and is there to teach us what we don't know. What if the way we have always learned things isn't the only way, and not only … Continue reading Learning Outside of the Box.
This week we had to create a digital story. Let me tell you, this was 100% out of my comfort zone; I have never even attempted to do anything like this. Usually, I am on top of this class and have everything done before the weekend rolls around, but I wasn't really confident in how … Continue reading My Story in Pictures and Words

Honestly, I like the systems that are easy and straightforward … Continue reading A Blank Canvas Has Unlimited Possibilities.

There are also kids who completely hated reading and still do to this day. Personally I think that digital storytelling … Continue reading Linda, Linda, Listen.
This is the third week of the ds106 30 day challenge. I can't believe that in a week and a couple of days this will all be over. I am just sharing what I did this week! #tdc1663 Filtered Selfie. I enlisted the help of Instagram so that I could add a filter I never … Continue reading Week 3: 21/30
As I mentioned last week in my ILP I am running a half marathon that will take place in May. The cool thing about this race for me is the fact that I get to run it with my best and closest friends.
