Biography

ashley-picture-for-resume-better-quality.jpgI am a teacher who sees great value in the integration of technology into all subject areas and grade levels as a means to motivate students and develop technological literacy.  My journey with experimenting with technology in the classroom began in 2004  during my teaching tenure at the American School of Kuwait where I had numerous resources available to me as well as colleagues who inspired me to start experimenting with technology in my classroom.  I started out small with a classroom webpage and a weekly blogging assignment for my students, but since then I’ve been learning about the numerous ways technology can be used in K-12 classrooms

In 2006 I returned to Saskatchewan, Canada to pursue graduate studies at the University of Regina.  During this time,  I had the privilege to work on the Digital Internship Action Research Project which is working to help pre-service teachers intregrate Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in their classroom. I have learned a great deal from my colleagues and the students in this project and I have had the opportunity to share my learnings with others.

For the past two years, I have been teaching at a high school in Regina and have been using technology here and there but have not been taking advantange of the numerous ways students can be both producers and consumers of online media.  Therefore, I have enrolled in EC&I 831 at the University of Regina to help spark new ideas and a renewed sense of purpose in how and why I can incorporate technology meaningfully and effectively in my classroom.
