Hello ECI832 crew. My name is Dean Vendramin. I'm very excited about continuing my Master's Certificate journey this semester. The topics of digital citizenship and media literacy are very important to me and have been areas I have researched and continue to explore in my personal and professional life. I have enjoyed reading the blog introductions of my fellow classmates. Excited to once again learn along side Brad R Catherine R Curtis B Daniel D Matteo D Nancy S Nataly M Shelby M , fellow RCSD Connected Educators Matt B Rob G Sarah R Trevor K and new classmates Adam W Christina P Daina S Leigh T Luyan X Victoria P to name a few. So many great perspectives and experiences coming together with to create a positive community of learning / learners.
The way the class is set up I find to be more engaging and empowering than of a more traditional class. I appreciate they way Alec organizes these classes. They are engaging, flexible, and learner centered. I also find these classes to be more 'work' than a traditional class but it doesn't really seem like work to me if that makes sense. To learn more about check out my ePortfolio and other resources I have on this site or check out my Twitter account @vendi55 Look forward to connecting and having another great learning experience.
