    Classroom Metaphor


    I created a metaphor about how I see myself as a teacher to preschool students. I feel that my experience as a dancer has helped me embrace the idea that we are all very unique. We all have different talents and abilities that deserve to be recognized and celebrated. I …

    Daily Creates Continued…


    I have to admit that I had the worst attitude about doing the daily creates. In a previous blog I referred to DS 106 as my nemesis. I have to admit my initial reaction to the daily creates could not have been more worng. In fact I have learned to …

    Being digitally mindful is something that I have been conscious about for a while now. I feel that technology plays a role in my life but I no longer let it control or consume me. I am very comfortable unplugging from my device and being …

    Digital Activism


    Before this weeks assignment I had never heard the term “digital activism”. I really wasn’t sure what it meant at all. Which lead me to google it. Out of all the websites I scanned I felt like this site  gave me the best summary of what Digital Activism is and …

    My first Youtube Video



    Last week I could not have imagined that I would have success in creating. I was very frustrated by the ds106 website and to be honest I was 100% confused about how it all worked. The problem wasn’t the site (even though I blamed it for being too confusing) …

    Boat maintance…


    This week was pretty uneventful as far as driving the boat goes. We traveled for the Holiday weekend to Ogallala and spent some quality time with good friends on Lake McConahay. Lake McConahay was so busy, I am talking hundreds of boats operating at the same time. It was crazy! …

    ds106… My nemesis



    I have really struggled with understanding ds106 and the daily creates. For me I felt like the ds106 had too much information for an excited beginner. I was expecting the site to be different from what it is. I spent a lot of time scurrying the site for how …

    I have to admit when I read over the assignments for the week I was a little intimidated by the abbreviation PLN and finding out what it meant. I slumped down in my comfy office chair and googled the term. The first sentence I read was “If you’ve never heard
