I’m Alexandria, I am enrolled at Charles Sturt University, currently studying a Masters of Teaching (Secondary). I’ve created this blog to reflect on the weekly modules of subject ESC407 – Classroom Technologies.
I started my Masters at the beginning of 2017 and I’m studying on a part-time basis as I’m balance study, work and parenthood. This is my first time studying online via correspondence and I’ve loving it. No two weeks (or days) are the same, and the flexibility of the online study environment makes it all possible.
I have no teaching experience to date, and my undergraduate was a Bachelor Law/Bachelor Communication (Journalism). After completing my undergrad I continued to complete a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice from the College of Law and was admitted in New South Wales. This all seems like lifetime ago, since starting a family. I’ve found study this time round, much harder (baby brain has been scientifically proven).
I’m looking forwards to learning more about classroom technologies, and applying such technologies in the classroom. I’m particularly interested in utilising tools to engage students, to explore alternatives to outdated text based resources and assessments which focus on ready and writing.
Please feel free to comment, I’d love to share ideas as we progress on this learning journey together.
