The statement, “who you are” is a daunting one. If your anything like me you probably look at it and think something like, “I’m not sure” or “I know what I like to do” or “I know what my beliefs and values are”. All of those thoughts end with the question, “do these traits make me who I am” . The truth is, I don’t really know. I think that that is something we all have to figure out on our own. Who we all are as a person is ever changing , or at least I am.
So who am I? Right now I am Kaytlyn. I am 20 years old, going to university to be a teacher, and working for a provincial park. I like art, nature, sports, and LEARNING. I believe that everyone should have the right to be treated equally regardless of socioeconomic class, gender, race, age, etc. I believe that everyone should be entitled to education, which we know everyone isn’t (even in Canada- take Shannen Koostachin for example). I believe that everyone should have access to medical care, again which we know isn’t true for everyone (People in Canada included- take Jordan’s Principal for example). I believe in a lot of things. However, I think the trend is clear. I am an advocate for social justice, as to what I am doing about that I am still unsure. For right now I am doing ALOT of reading and starting to share some of my knowledge – we’ll see where that takes me.
As to how I feel about blogging… this is still new to me. I started my eportfolio about two years ago. I think I’m starting to get the hang of it but I know there is still lots to learn. I believe that blogging (or rather sharing what you know in any technological format) is important because it is a tool to use to connect with people from around the world. How crazy is that? In the past five years or so I have begun to expand in regards to my knowledge of the educational technology realm. The big jump start for me started in my Ed. courses within the University of Regina’s Pre-K- Five Program. Throughout my time not only in this course, but also through my teaching career I hope to continue learning about educational technology and I think here is a pretty good place to start!
