This is my first course in the MET program and I am excited to get going. I am a high school teacher in Powell River B.C currently teaching science, however with a background in geography my preferred subject area is social studies. Outside of regular classes I end up coaching a lot of volleyball and basketball. I also run a digital music club where students use digital media to create original tracks as well as learn how to DJ the school dances. Both the school district and the local Vancouver Island University campus are turning to education technology to offer a wide range of programs to our rural and isolated students. I’m hoping to learn more about ventures in learning technologies so I can be informed, critical and involved in my community’s future in education.
