So this is a blog page I had to create for my education in technology class at UVic. I have to say technology is not my friend very often, and usually my 17 year old nephew has to teach me what is new and how to use it. This involves many eye rolls and comments of “Auntie Crystal, I showed you this 5 times already.” It was bad enough when he was teaching me how to play Mario Cart but in the last 10 years tech has moved far beyond that and from one year to the next I have no idea if we are watching YouTube videos or building in MineCraft or trying to capture Pokemon Go. I am pretty sure that going into Education is going to mean asking a lot of questions and learning from my students. Because officially I am old – I mean I am really not a native tech user. Atari was tech when I was a kid. I remember when we got an Apple 2 GS and this huge printer with the holes in the sides…and my brother, steve, mostly played some game on it that I’m sure would later give him carpel tunnel since the only way to move the player was to use the arrow keys.
So I’m a little out of my league, and as this website shows, I don’t even update what I do have on a regular basis. So this is my big foray into the world – hopefully I will learn how to embrace new things, although I know there is no way I can keep up with everything. I will do my best to at least keep up with my students! I now have a twitter account under @crystalloszchuk so I will hopefully be posting hilarious things to that site. I’m entering a new world…
