I chose this picture because like most people, I text a lot on my phone. I text more than I actually talk on my phone (I know some people rarely talk on their phone and only text, just so you know—I’m not that person). This picture showcases the use of text (writing and texting), technology (phone), and reading (communicating and understanding nonstandard English words, i.e. “lol”).
I am currently taking my 5th and 6th MET courses this semester. I took this course because I am hoping it will provide me with a deeper understanding of text and technology along with resources/ideas I can utilize in my classroom. I am a TTOC (teacher teaching on call) in the Surrey School District with almost one year of teaching experience. I am eager to get my own classroom!
I look forward to working with all of you,
Nice to see you in another MET course. I also text more than I phone now, but will still get in the hour talks with my mom or close friends. I actually got my mom to start texting so that we could communicate more often, but without the hour long chat sessions.
Looking forwards to working with you again,
