This is my last course in the MET program. I am so excited to get to the finish line, because it has been over 5 yrs since I started the program and a lot has happened in my life that made the journey interesting but very rewarding. I live in the Niagara region, just over 15 minutes away from the famous Niagara falls. I enjoy spending time with my kids and picking new skills that would help me grow professionally.
I am currently an IT Business Analyst, but worked as an EdTech specialist for over 10 years until I decided to try something different. Now in a new career, I have found a lot of transferable skills which I learned as an educator. Despite working in a non-educational organization, I find there are innovations that are occurring in every industry and we are beginning to experience similarities in emerging technologies used in education and the business world. Nowadays, we see technologies such as Microsoft Teams, One Drive, Google drive used outside of educational organizations and cutting across several industries. While ETEC522 focuses on ventures in Learning Technologies, I am excited to use the skills learned in this course to explore opportunities both in educational technologies and business.
Looking forward to learning with everyone.
