Introduction Post to EC&I 834!!!

Hello everyone,

My name is Amy Cross and I am in my fifth year of teaching for Regina Public Schools. I have had the opportunity to teach grade 3,4, 6, 7, 8. Although I did the Middles Years Program at the University of Regina, I have been enjoying teaching more the primary grades, mostly grades 3.

I am currently enrolled in the Curriculum and Instruction Master’s program here at the University of Regina. I am in my 8th and 9th class this semester.

I began my master’s journey last January (2018), so it definitely has been a rather quick process, yet enjoyable. This is my third class with Alec and I am so very much looking forward to it. Three goals I  have for this class include:

  1. To learn about that the history and foundations of blended and online learning. I am interested to learn how online learning started and how we came to be at the point we are today (if that makes sense).
  2. To learn specific strategies and techniques on how to incorporate online learning in the classroom today.  I am definitely interested in incorporating MORE online learning in my current and future classrooms.
  3. To get to know and work with everyone in the class. Most importantly, LEARN from others projects, shared experiences, and the stories they tell!

Thank you everyone for reading and I am VERY excited to be working and learning alongside you this semester!
