I chose this picture for its literal translation. Both text (letters) and technology (robots). But the more I read in the prefatory material the more I liked the image on different levels. The letters in the game of scrabble are in fact text but also tactile in nature.
I have to admit when I briefly read over the course outline I thought I was in for something different. I am interested to explore more recent changes in how modern technologies have changed the way we communicate.
My name is Ryan Edgar and I live and teach high school in North Vancouver. I am taking 2 courses this term which will be 6 & 7 for me (the end is getting closer every term – obviously). The good news on a personal note is that successful completion of these 2 courses will mean I move to a PB+15 on the pay scale – yeah (if you are a teacher in BC then you know what I mean). I look forward to taking this journey with each of you -good luck to us all!
