So, naturally, when the debate topic this… Continue reading Technology in the Classroom

Digital Identity

Digital Identity. What does this mean to students? At this point of technology, it might not mean very much simply because they may not see a difference between their digital identity and personal identity.

Is it too late?

Technology is everywhere. This week was focused on the good and the bad revolving around technology. I honestly don't remember the world without it (mind you, I would have been extremely young when it was starting to become popular), and I don't think most people would remember not having some sort of technology around.

Assessment

At the beginning of this week's class, we were fortunate enough to have a presentation from Kevin Tonita. The part of his presentation that really stood out to me was when he was discussing assessment in the form of departmental exams. Constantly in my education math class we are being told to stray away from… Continue reading Assessment
