Digital Communication: My Digital Journey

A year ago, if you asked me how I felt about the use of technology in class, I would definitely answer "I don´t know about that! It´s too complicated to deal with and time-consuming. I just can´t handle that. I have a 40-hour job and a tight schedule." When I look back and think about it, I´m flabbergasted to see how much I´ve changed, how the way I see technology in class changed. I absolutely love teaching and I don´t see myself doing anythingelse in life, but now I have something ELSE to help me get there, reach a teaching goal, reach my students.And all it took me was a little practice, time to use, explore the tools I had available and see what they could do for me. Choose from, experiment. And that´s what I did this year, while working on this project. I realize now that all I needed was a little push and  I realized it´s not that hard. We´ll never learn to do something unless we try. I was known as a digital illiterate (and there is still a long way, I know)and people might wonder why I am involved in a digital project. The thing is, I needed this little push to get started and the love for writing was what brought me this far.I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I did.


  1. Cleide,

    I enjoyed every little bit of the ride too! It's amazing what people can do when there's collaboration and passion. Thank you for sharing your love for teaching with us!

  2. I thank you for being so supportive and above all, enthusiastic and positive about it. When I thought I would not be able to make it to the end, you assured me I would and I believe it.
