Chelsi's Educational Musings

About Me

 Hello!  I am a grade five teacher from Regina, Saskatchewan, and this is my seventh year of teaching.  I started my first year as the sole Arts Ed. teacher for over 800 K-8 students at two schools.  That was pure insanity, as I was not even trained to teach Arts Ed., but you take what you can get in your first year.  Since then, I have taught grades 4, 4/5, 5, and 6.  This is my fifth Masters class in EC&I, and my second online class.  In my spare time, I love do all things artsy and creative.  I have a jewellery business called Three Little Birds Jewellery where I use vintage jewellery to create new pieces.  It keeps me quite busy, and I have my line selling in a few stores in the city.  I also absolutely love fashion, music, home decor, and anything vintage and retro!  I was also busy for the past year planning my wedding, and was married to my husband Paul this August.  Paul and I are both avid music followers and we love to attend concerts and music festivals together, as well as play our own music.  Paul is also in a local band called Left English, so life is pretty busy around our house!  Adding to our enjoyment is our pup, Lucy, who is a constant source of entertainment!

I will be using this blog to discuss my thoughts regarding my EC&I 831 class, articles that I read pertaining to the class, and anything related to social media and open education.  I hope that you will comment when you see fit and that we can learn from each other.  Also, feel free to follow me on Twitter @ChelsiGobeil.

Hi Chelsi, I’m a non-credit participant from the EC&I 831 course. I enjoyed reading your post on George Siemens presentation (https://chelsi8383.wordpress.com/2011/10/13/wayfinding-through-new-educational-terrain/)… should we put our students through ideas only used by ‘early adopters’ or should we wait for stability?

Thanks for the comment! I usually am prone to wait for a bit of stability, although it is exciting to try new things as they are released. I think it depends on the task and the group of students.
