December 2, 2021: The Learning Project Summary

As always, I am shocked that the semester came to an end so quickly! When I embarked on my learning project, I felt as though I had all of the time in the world. With that being said, I still feel like there are more facets to explore regarding ASL and Deaf culture. Nonetheless, IContinue reading “December 2, 2021: The Learning Project Summary”


November 29, 2021: A Small Update Before the Finale!

Well, folks this is my final update! My Learning Project has been more of a journey, than a destination. My goal was quite broad, as I wasn’t quite sure where my project would take me. Although this is my final post, I still feel like I am not ready to be finished! There are soContinue reading “November 29, 2021: A Small Update Before the Finale!”

November 28, 2021: …And That’s A Wrap!

Well folks… That’s it, that’s all! However, before I officially wrap it up, here’s a little background information on my Summary of Learning… Since learning about Creative Commons licenses, I aimed to use the majority of my photos from this resource. In addition, Alec spoke to how humans shape tools and eventually the tools shapeContinue reading “November 28, 2021: …And That’s A Wrap!”

November 20, 2021: Assessment & the Value of OERs

The OER Movement: Is it worth it? Based on my previous blog post about OERs and the many useful resources Alec provided for us to explore, simply put, yes– the OER movement is valuable and certainly “worth it.” There are so many well-made resources out there that often go over-looked because Teachers Pay Teachers (TPT)Continue reading “November 20, 2021: Assessment & the Value of OERs”

November 14, 2021: Learning Project Update # 4

It’s been another busy two weeks since my last post! I’m slowly starting to bring my project to a close because our last class is only two weeks away… Anyone else thinking they should probably start working on their Summary of Learning Project…? Nonetheless, it’s a little bittersweet realizing that this project is wrapping up.Continue reading “November 14, 2021: Learning Project Update # 4”

November 7, 2021: The Power and Potential of Open Education Resources

Another blog prompt, another anecdote to start us off… The first class I took in my graduate studies was the research methods course. In this course, we were tasked with writing a hypothetical literature review on any topic of our choosing. After much deliberation, I decided to write my review on teacher collaboration and theContinue reading “November 7, 2021: The Power and Potential of Open Education Resources”

October 31, 2021: Learning Project Update # 3

Like I mentioned in my previous post, I wanted to mainly focus on my ASL skills, creating a Wakelet with my resources, and continue to watch Deaf U and listening to Seen and Not Heard. I was also hoping to show a little more learning retention by practicing the skills I’ve already learned, such asContinue reading “October 31, 2021: Learning Project Update # 3”

October 24, 2021: Social Media and Social Justice

Until taking my first class with Alec, which was almost two years in ago in EC&I 832, I completely steered clear of posting anything on social media that could even remotely ruffle any feathers. I was so nervous to post on Twitter and start connecting with other educators! In the end, I’m glad I’ve comeContinue reading “October 24, 2021: Social Media and Social Justice”

October 17, 2021: Learning Project Update # 2

Okay. I’ve set some pretty lofty goals and I need to scale it down. Classic Leigh. I’ve also learned something new about myself. I’m more interested in learning about the education, culture, and community surrounding deafness more than I am about ASL. I’ve learned so much about deaf culture over the past few weeks, IContinue reading “October 17, 2021: Learning Project Update # 2”

October 3, 2021: Learning Project Update #1

Over the past two weeks, I’ve finally started making some headway! It has been a process learning ASL, organizing interviews, and trying to soak in as much information as I can in an efficient (and effective) manner. Now that I’ve got the ball rolling, I’m starting to feel a little more confident in the directionContinue reading “October 3, 2021: Learning Project Update #1”
