Why did the chicken cross the road?
This is probably one of the most told “jokes” out there. As silly as this question is, I want to draw attention to the search for the “why” and purpose that it invokes.
Even my children seem to be always asking “why”. Check out this snapshot of an imagined, but common conversation.
Me- “No, we can’t do…..”
Kelaiah- “But, Why”
Me- “Because I said so, that’s why”
Everyone wants to know why, and that’s great. It’s our natural curiosity and search for knowledge that fosters growth. When engaging in conversations such as the one above, I remind myself that I must answer the “why”; for it is the answer to “why” that fosters comprehension. However, there are situations in life where “why” is asked and the recipient also doesn’t know. Rather then settling for “because”, we must aspire to embrace our human curiosity and search together.
So, why did you take ECMP 355?
I have prepared a summary of learning called, My Digital Journey using a fantastic digital tool called, “voice thread”. I discovered this tool on the amazing resource hub, 5o Ways To Tell A Story, Although I used a personal image, most of the images where taken from a great photo resource called, PhotoPin.
So, What now?
As I said in my story, my digital journey has only just begun. I look forward to investing in blogging, exploring/implementing technology in the classroom, staying connected, and engaging in digital lifelong learning.
Thanks for reading,
P.S. The chicken crossed the road to get to the other side.
