Hi everyone, I’m Danna Schoff! From looking on the Google Community, I see there are a handful of people I have had classes with over the last few years ( excited to see you all again!). For those people I have not met yet, I am looking forward to getting to know you over this upcoming semester and learning alongside all of you!
To tell you a little bit about myself, I just finished my internship placement in a grade 1/2 classroom here in Regina and am wrapping up my final semester of my degree. I have a passion for dancing and living an active lifestyle. I grew up dancing competitively and am now a member of the University of Regina Dance Team. When I’m not dancing, I love to do yoga, attend spin classes and going on runs.
In my internship, I was very lucky to be placed with my co-operating teacher who is a Connected Educator. . The classroom I was placed in was blessed to have a class set of tablets to use for our learning and documentation each day. During my internship, I learned various tools that could be used on the tablets such as Seesaw, Flipgrid, and Mathletics. Another tool I used in my teaching was Mimio. Mimio has many tools that offer interactive and exciting learning opportunities in the classroom.
If any of you follow me on Twitter, you may already know my thoughts on blogging. I believe that using blogs in schools can be very effective and I am very excited to get the ball rolling on mine! However, as a beginning blogger I have f9und myself running into a few speed bumps. Right now, it is something I’m feeling a little uncomfortable with. I have spent a lot of time watching wordpress tutorial videos and how to blog for beginners as I am finding the set up of my blog to be challenging! I am looking forward to growing in this class and learning tips and tricks on how to become a better blogger ( any tips you may have, send them my way!).
