The above video is a recap of Dean's, Curtis', and my final projects for the class #eci832. They did amazing work. We basically spent our time debriefing about our biggest take aways from the course, in the context of our final projects. It's a great chat, and worth a listen. :)
From all this, we have decided that maybe, just maybe, we'll continue getting together, chatting about education, inspiring ourselves, and interviewing our fellow teachers. Best of all, we plan to continue uploading to YouTube, and we'll also look at uploading as a podcast. We aim to do this maybe once a month... more if we can. What an amazing thing that happened, I would have never thought I'd be in such a position 4 months ago. To be around and conversing with such amazing teachers as Dean and Curtis... well, just another blessing that came out of our #eci832 experience.
In other news, even though I did my wrap up post about 10 days ago (find that article HERE), I thought I'd give one last brief update on my personal journey into social media. So, some screenshots:
It's not much, but I've had more views in the last month than all of 2019. Slowly, I'm moving up! :)
Top video views... I'm not sure if I should cry or be happy, but a video I made in 2016 for a grade 9 math concept is month in and month out my most viewed video on my channel. What did I do so right? Someone who understands how YouTube works, please help!! I don't understand! Strangely, a video for gr 11 precalc that represents the first lesson in unit 1 also made the cut this month? Whaaaaat...
...And on the Twitter front, I continue to use the platform for my own development, with the secondary goal of just reaching out there and chatting with other educators/interesting people out there in the real world!
Well, my class Wakelet from last semester was not on public... and I realized it today! So today I finally made it public (DOH!) and put a tweet out on Twitter. If even one person finds it useful that'll be great.... Here's a link: https://wke.lt/w/s/i3splz
My new initiative, which isn't amazing, but which I have had great feedback from my students from is my "10 Minute Math Review" series on YouTube. Total knock off of Khan Academy (hey man, copy the best!), but more focused, and focused solely on the Manitoba Curriculum. Home grown stuff!
I plan to continue making these as time permits. My current goal is to create 2 of these every 7 days. Check out my latest:
Revival of #MBEdchat?
Last but not least... I'm interesting in reviving #MBEdChat on Twitter. I created a new account... but I'm trying to reach out to however owns the current account, whose last tweet was in 2017. I am cautiously moving forward on this... I hope to see if there is some interest. We are just going to do it eventually, and I believe I am starting to have the support network I need in order to accomplish this.
My name is Matteo Di Muro, the original Prairie Boy, and I've been teaching since I was 14. I currently teach mathematics and computer science in Brandon. I try to keep on learning things, and I'm getting onboard with sharing with others, hence this site!
