Tech Task #7

So I recently got to participate in a session at tappedIn and found it very informative. It was much different then I thought it would be as I thought there would be more then just two other people myself and the person leading the session. It was very cool and I got to learn all about the website and how to navigate around it. This is very helpful because when first going onto the website I learned that I found it very hard to navigate and understand, but after going to this I realize that it isn't that hard. This website is FULL of rooms, I could not believe it. There are people from all over the world on it. Dianne (our leader) was very informed of the website and had no trouble answering any of our questions. She even showed me how to find Alec on the site and send him a message! (I didn't send him a message though, BUT I do know how now!) I found it very cool how you can jump from room to room easily and how this would be helpful in the classroom. It was overall a positive experience and I will keep checking back at TappedIn as my career progresses for more educational help!


Wow has time flew by! I had a great semester with good classes! Going to miss ECMP though, it was one class that I can truly say i enjoyed coming to and a class where i actually learned something that will be useful for my future! It's so nice now to have programs on my computer such as open office. Also nice to have all my bookmarked pages "dotted" and I can get onto them at any computer, HANDY! Also nice to have all my "favorite" websites sitting at the top of the page and it is as easy as a click of the mouse to get there. Learned so many helpful websites and other pieces of technology! This blogging business is kind of cool i do suppose, but I am not sure if I will keep up with it. I truly do enjoy reading all my "high tech" friend's blogs from time to time and see what they are feeling and what they are up to, blogging is kind of cool in that way! Finished our major project which was a video that Krysta, Brittney and I created. It's kind of cool, I am pretty pleased with the final result had TONS of fun doing the filming at the Preeceville Fire Department and it will be fun to look back on in like ten years and laugh at myself. Thats about all I got about this class, but I am telling ANY education student that i run into to TAKE ECMP 355 WITH ALEC!
I love Christmas..thought i'd throw that in there. Was talking to my mommy today on the telephone trying to figure out what we are doing for Christmas. Its so hard to find time to visit EVERYONE in your family, this year will be a little bit harder now that i have to find time to spend time with Chris and his family, oh well i'm sure everything will work out in the end. I guess I will head off to hudson bay to hang with my granny ward and that family on Christmas Day then on New years the other side of the family will come to my house for a shin dig. Christmas is filled with so many traditions...i love tradition..half of the time though we really forget why we do what we do when we do it, if you know what i mean? I just don't question it anymore and go with the flow. hehe, its easier that way sometimes! I can't wait to get out of the city for almost a month, Monday is my last exam and after it i am heading STRAIGHT to Saskatoon to spend some time with Chris, then its homeword bound to see all my kids! My mom is a babysitter at home and there is about 8 little kids that i really miss right now, so i can't wait to see them! anyways! i Hope everyone has a VERY Merry Christmas and well a HAPPY NEW YEAR and see everyone in the next semester! Entertain me, what are some of your favorite Christmas traditions?

Catch ya on the flip side!
