My Digital Portfolio
Whats to come
The content of this Portfolio will include the bulk of my work for my Masters in Education Technology. There will be videos describing the many uses of Education Technology and how they make our classrooms a better place. Included will be 4 modules that will depict this mission of figuring out what it takes to be an education technology professional and how we can pass that knowledge on to others. Finally there will be a capstone project encapsulates all the important content that was learned throughout this course, and how we can use this information going forward. Hope you enjoy my Ed tech journey.
