The Happiness of Being Creative… Energizing Thoughts for the Start of My School Year

Is there anything better than starting a new school year? The crisp smell of fall in the air (or a blanket of snow the first week of school if you live in Calgary), the anticipation of meeting your new students, the hope and dreams of the year to come.

Well this year I got a double bonus. Not only did I get to start a new year as a Professional School Counsellor at Bishop Carroll High School, a member of the Canadian Coalition of Self Directed Learning Schools but I have also been involved as a co-conspirator for Alberta’s first #OCLMooc.

Creating new things gives me hope and energy. I have had so much fun this month Vlogging, S’Moring, using Animoto and just generally tinkering around with technology. Here are a few of my projects I’ve been working on.

I would love any feedback you may have or suggestions for future tools or ideas to play with.

Happily yours
