I responded to this image specifically because film, game and media literacy are passions of mine. I also was challenged by the concept of financial literacy, something I had never previously considered. I also see the image as a metaphor for producing one’s interpretation of a concept. It may not be the flashiest or most visual design, but it is one person’s perspective and therefore has value.
I am Jessica Dickens from Vancouver, BC (originally from Shawnigan Lake, BC). I have recently (3 weeks ago!) started a new position as a secondary English, ESL and Drama teacher at a new private school in downtown Vancouver. This is going to be an incredibly challenging year for me as I finish MET by August as well as developing new curriculum for a new school going through accreditation. So please understand if I am mainly only able to contribute on the weekends. I am very excited to take this class; it is the one I have been waiting for!
I look forward to working with all of you!
