My First Twitter Chat!

So tonight I was apart of my first twitter chat, beside the one I did with my edtc300 class. The chat I took part in was #edchat. The question they asked was how do we support a movement for supportive, effective, and collaborative professional development for all educators? When I first read it, it took me a while to answer. I’m not a person who normally speaks up or talks in front of people, and even though this was over the phone it still made me nervous. It was my first twitter chat and there was so many adults who were already teachers, and who are a lot older than me. I wanted to fit in with them. I made my tweet and then one of the older teachers and one of the leaders of this chat retweeted my tweet, I honestly felt so much better about this twitter chat. I tweeted again, and started liking, retweeting, and commenting on other teachers comments towards the question. I have teachers who are now following me, and I’m following them now. I honestly was really uneasy about the chat at the start but I actually really enjoyed it. I feel more comfortable now. I really enjoyed seeing what other people had to say, and what they had to say about my tweets. I will join more chats, and continue to do them.


Week Two of Learning how to Cook

For my second week of learning how to cook I made Chili. I really enjoy chili but I don’t like when other people make it because I don’t like the kidney beans. When I made the Chili I decided to leave out the beans so I don’t have to eat them, since I was the one making it. I only made a small pot because I didn’t want to much leftovers. I still wantedimg_1959 (1) to let some people to try it because I wanted to know how good it was. I let my mom and grandma both have some. They told me I did not add enough chili seasoning, and that next time I should add more. My mom also told me it was a little too spicy for her liking but that’s the way I like it, I like spicy foods. She said there was more spice then chili flavor. Chili is really easy to make, and I’m glad I learned how to make it. I made my grandmas recipe because her Chili is so good. The only thing I changed was adding no beans, and making it a little bit more spicy then her.


Interesting Educational Blogs

I was looking for blogs about Education to connect with other teachers, guidance about the education world. I want to be able to connect with teachers from all over the world. It would be cool to be able to read and learn about schools, education, and what it’s like to be teachers and their experiences.

When trying to find blogs I googled good Educational blogs, and I came across Top 10 Education Tech Blogs There is a lot of good blogs on this website.

My favourite blog that I cam across was My Paperless Classroom He gives you ideas on how to incorporate technology into the classroom for positive teaching. He even addresses video games in the classroom. There is so many amazing blogs on this website.

I highly recommend you guys to check out these blogs, they give you awesome ideas, positives that technology has.


My First attempt at my final project!

For my final project I want to learn how to cook. I will admit I’m probably the worst for this because I’m the kind of person who is fine with eating soup, sandwiches, itchy ban, or macaroni. Even though I like all these things, I think it’s time I learn how to make stuff to eat so I can cook for my future, and so I can start eating better. My first little meal I made was an bacon egger sandwich, I thought I should start out easy so that I can show my progress over time.  Also because I can’t cook at all so I shouldn’t go in making this fabulous massive meal.

When I was making the sandwich I started by putting the bacon in the oven and cutting the bun. When the bacon was half way to being done. I startimg_1939 (1) the egg and while that was frying, I buttered the bun and grilled it too. When everything was done I grab the bottom of the bun, put bacon, then egg, then cheese, and then I drizzled some hot sauce on as well. I used to hate hot sauce but now I love it. Not gonna lie I was pretty proud of myself for how well it turned out. I know it’s an easy start but I was still proud.


Get to know me!

Hello, I’m Kaitlyn Barry. I just turned 20 years old at the beginning of 2019. I’m in my second year of the middle years program here at the University of Regina. I’m from Moose Jaw, and live in Regina during the weeks but on the weekends I go home to see my family. I’ve only been in the classroom once during my education program, and there was very minimum technology in the class, they hand write their writing, except a couple students got to use computers to help them, students who needed a little bit more help. Other then that there was very minimum technology in the classroom. I remember when I was in elementary we used technology a lot in the classroom, we used it for research, play music, read books, and many more things. When it comes to blogging I’m still getting used to how everything works, I only used it for one class and that was first year, first semester. As of right now I’m not a huge fan of blogging but I think it’s still because I’m not very good at it. I’m sure my mind will change the more I use it.
