Changed World of Technology

The fact the technology is constantly evolving is common knowledge. Every single day, we are seeing advancements in technology: new apps, better phones, improved software and more options. The things we can do with technology now is not even comparable to fifteen years ago. However, we are faced with a challenging question: is this doing more harm than good?  Continue reading Changed World of Technology

Twitter Chat: #COLchat

It was so enjoyable talking about passion areas with other educators on an international level. There are so many different view points and takeaways and I can’t wait for the next one. Here is how the chat went and some of the discussions:  Continue reading Twitter Chat: #COLchat

Baked Spaghetti Squash? Yes, please!

These Muffins are Bananas!

To kickstart my learning project, I decided to make healthy banana muffins using a recipe I read on Gimme Some Oven‘s blog. When I came across this blog, I was very excited. There are lots of great recipes that are all very healthy. Here is how the process went:

STEP ONE: Get the necessary ingredients. I was able to find all of these ingredients at Superstore. For me, going to the store was easiest but if this isn’t an option for you, you can actually shop online so they are ready to be picked up here. Continue reading These Muffins are Bananas!

Get to know me…

mountainMy name is Courtney Anderson and I am a secondary education student. Even though
my days are often spend studying and doing homework, I do have many other passions. I have been a dance instructor for the last six years. When I am not teaching, I volunteer coach community dance teams. I coached the Winston Knoll dance team fo
r five years, the University of Regina dance team for two, and now I am currently coaching the Campbell jazz team. In my spare time I love escaping to the quiet of my cabin, spending time with family, exploring, and getting active. Throughout my education career I have completed a bit of blogging, but not consistently. However, I am very excited to give it a try and dive into the blogger life.

This made things a bit harder and we often had to resort to cell phones; but nevertheless we used technology the best we could. Here were some of my favourites:
