Today, my heart is so full. I knew this day had to come, but grateful and sad emotions are taking over me. For some, it is a regular Wednesday in June, but for me, it was my last day working as an Educational Assistant at St-Anne Catholic School in Cornwall, ON. In late April, the opportunity to...

EDyoga – next gen [collision 3]

I have not engaged with big picture EDU in a responsive and responsible manner. And to get global in my pedagogy, I will ned a mentor. I became aware of the U.N.'s Global Goals back in September. I thought connecting a newly formed TED-Ed Club with these elements would be awesome.  Somewhere...

Out of My Mind—and Into Theirs!

I've always been a sucker for a good metaphor. A well-used, provocative metaphor can go a long way to helping to both deepen and broaden our understanding of the world in which we live. So to say that Cathy Fosnot had me at landscapes of learning would be a bit of an understatement. In fact, as we...

Les aventures en Sketchnote d’une future enseignante

À la suite d’un atelier avec Marie-Andrée Ouimet au Sommet EdTechTeam à Lachine, QC en mai 2016, j’ai rapidement pris intérêt au sketchnote dans le monde de l’éducation.
