Annotation: Smithee acknowledges that there can be many benefits to integrating technology into the classroom setting. However, he admits that there has been several studies done that prove there can be many negative effects on children who use technology in the classroom.

Welcome to Amy Cross’ Blog!

Hello fellow EC&I 830 classmates!

My name is Amy Cross and I am in my 4th year of teaching. I was born and raised in Regina. I graduated from the University of Regina in 2014 with a Bachelor of Education in Middle Years. Shortly after, I began my Inclusive Education Certificate while working full time and finished it in April 2016. I am now working toward a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction and am currently enrolled in my third and fourth class. I heard nothing but good things about this course and decided to choose it for an elective toward my masters. I am looking forward to learning alongside everyone and to delve into technology in the classroom!

On my blog, my hope is to share my weekly responses. I also will attempt to share any new information I find that is related to technology or topics in the class! This is my first time ever trying to do this blog thing! Here goes nothing!
