I’m Linda Kwan, your Vancouver School Board Learning Technologies Mentor.
THIS IS MY VSB WORDPRESS BLOG ABOUT HOW TO BLOG ON YOUR NEW VSB WORDPRESS SITE.
If you’re already a blogger you’ll soon realize that your self-hosted site behaves quite differently than this one on our VSB server. On this blog I hope to help you navigate the whimsical twists and turns that will surely engage you in its idiosyncracies.
If you’re new to blogging, nevermind. Just join me in learning how to make good use of this free VSB-hosted site so you can make your workflow a little bit easier and your learners way impressed with your tech savviness.
FYI: A BIT ABOUT ME…
Today, as a part-time Learning Technologies Mentor on my district days and a part-time English teacher on my teaching days, I have the best of both worlds. I am privileged to be able to visit elementary and secondary schools throughout our district to mentor and collaborate with teachers, staff and students about how Learning Technologies can help to Engage our learners and deepen learning. Our Learning Tech Mentors’ site is i3.vsb.bc.ca
This blog, INQUIRING MINDS, is a collection of posts that I hope will Inspire you to try new things, prompt you to Inquire about what you can do differently to engage your learners and show how you can take action and Innovate to deepen learning despite our sometimes not-so-21st-century classroom environments.
Stay tuned for student and teacher exemplars of neat blogs and wikis from around our district.
