Managing my time


With only 2 and a half weeks left of school and so many projects left to do, how do you fit it all in? For most of my university career I have been a procrastinator and gotten projects done a day or two before they are due. For this degree I have tried hard to get assignments done earlier but it still does not always work out that way. To top it all off, I got a really bad cold at the beginning of this week which has totally thrown everything off. Somehow I still need to manage my time so that I can finish all of my assignments on time and make sure I do not get stressed out in the process. I know that everything will get done on time. I need to make sure that I get plenty of rest and try not to get to stressed out. I wish everyone luck as they finish up those final assignments. The finish line is coming up!


Reflection of what I have learned


So for my final summary reflection for the end of this class, there are some things that I am going to talk about. I have found that I have learned so much about technology that I had no idea existed before. I am amazed by what is out there. I usually only go on Facebook or use Google to do some searches. I rarely watch videos on youtube, but have found that there are some pretty good ones on there. I found that you can actually learn quite a bit from youtube. Of course, some of these videos are not the greatest and I would never show them to my students. But there are some that I think would be worth showing. I have gotten a Twitter account @machuka27 but have only tweeted a couple of times. It’s something that I have to do more often, otherwise I lose interest. These are just a few of the things I have learned in ECMP 355. I will post my summary reflection in a couple weeks, once the finished product is ready to go.

UCLA’s racist girl

Leave a comment

Last week in a couple of my classes, we watched this video on youtube about a girl named Alexandra Wallace who goes on a rant about asians. It’s unbelievable. I couldn’t believe that someone would say something like that, let alone post it to the internet. It really makes me aware of what I should and should not post on the internet. Once it’s on there, it never goes away. She did take her original video down but of course there are now remakes of it.

The best remake is this guy who made a song about it.

When I have my own classroom, I would make sure to let my students know about the importance of what you put on the internet and what you do not put on there. If it is something that is personal, it is a better to not put it on the internet.

Any thoughts about this video?

The countdown is on!

Leave a comment

The countdown is on for the last few weeks of the semester. It’s hard to believe that this semester is almost over, which means that I am almost finished my second degree. I have been going to the University of Regina for the past 8 years. I never thought I would be here to get two degrees but that is just how things worked out. And I am glad that things worked out the way they did. I am finally going to be moving towards a career that I have always wanted to do, which is teaching. As long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a teacher. I hope to inspire my students and hope that they will be excited to come to school and learn. I have also met some really good friends along the way. Although the next 3 weeks will be very stressful, I know that it will be worth it in the end. Good luck to everyone who is finishing up their last semester and good luck to those who still have a couple years to go. Those couple years will go by fast and will be over before you know it.

Tech Task #9- Six Word Stories

Leave a comment

My first 6 word story is based on the japan tsunami. I cannot imagine losing everything so quickly. I would have been devastated, as I’m sure everyone in Japan is feeling now. The orginal document can be found here.


My second 6 word story is about my dog Bandit. We had to put him down in 2009 because he was getting very old and had some other health problems. He was someone I could always rely on and he never let me down.
