Summary of learning

As I reflect and put the final touches on my summary of learning, I am actually really surprised at how much we have done in this class in such a short amount of time! The debate format of this class was super intimidating at first. When it was my turn to debate on Week 3, my teammates and I were all shaking with nerves! However, after I got over the nerves, I realized  how engaging this class format really is. It gave us the opportunity to collaborate and learn from each other, rather than the teacher as all-knowing in a traditional classroom. Not only were we being active participants in our own learning, but we were sharing, commenting, and tweeting outside the regular classroom hours. If I got a notification that someone had commented on my blog on Saturday morning it got me excited! The debate format of the class allowed Alec to model how a teacher can act as facilitator, and although it would look different in my grade 4 classroom, I am definitely going to reflect over the summer of different ways I can use this model in my own class.


EC&I830 it has been an absolute honor to work with all of you this semester! I hope you enjoy my summary of learning.

I have learned a lot from you and your support and encouragement these past weeks has been so important to me. Thank you and well done!


  2. Awesome video Kari I just loved it. My god, you are so creative, the video kept me so engaged and I must admit it was one of my favorites. I really enjoyed the way you chose to present with and the message behind your words. Been a lot of fun studying alongside you especially in the debate, I got to know so many things which I never thought about and thanks for that! Enjoyed reading your blogs very much and is amazing to see how much we have learned in such a short semester! Thank you for sharing your journey and being a part of my learning!


  3. Kari – you rocked this final project! I was engaged the entire time I was watching it and I loved every second of it! Thank you for sharing your point of view in such a fun and inspiring way!

    You had mentioned that we get an account to WeVideo through our school division. Would you be able to point me in the direction of acquiring the login info? I’d be interested to use this program in the future.

    Happy Summer!

    • Hey Amanda!! Thank you, I was a bit worried nobody would think it’s funny but me so I am so relieved! Yes we have access to WeVideo with our RBE login info! Log in to google docs with your RBE info (email and password like regular) and then go to the shared with me section. There will be a link to sign in to get you the upgraded version! Let me know if you have issues and I can help.
