I am from

Learning to use Haiku Deck:


I am From… – Created with Haiku Deck, presentation software that inspires;

Here are my reflections from the experience:

Something surprising that I learned from this activity is that the use of technology can be a very touching and emotional process. Somehow the juxtaposition of my childhood memories and current life seems to fit into the simple format of Haiku Deck. I can see how the use of Haiku Deck could be both practical and relevant with students, especially because it is so visual. Since the process is very simplified, the student spends more time focusing on their poetry than choosing a fancy font. Next year I will be in an elementary music position and I look forward to integrating technology into all of my music classes. I particularly resonated with the discussion about the “flipped classroom,” because the use technology, in appropriate situations, is an important part of teaching more effectively so that we can spend more time on the important stuff; playing music!

  1. Hi Heidi! I really love your non-literal take on where you’re from–it really captured the feeling of the poem we were given while also showcasing your own uniqueness! Also your dog is adorable!

  2. Hello Heidi,
    Thank you for sharing personal pictures with us! I like that you used pictures of yourself in this presentation. It adds to your intended meaning and brings an emotional pull while reading the few words that you use. I laughed out loud when I read “Make faces at babies” and I smiled when I read “collecting gravel collecting pebbles.”

  3. Heidi,
    I love your haiku deck that you created. I enjoyed the little glimpse that you gave us into your past. I was looking and reading through, I can relate to some of your thoughts. I also have had many scraped knees while bike ridding and I still have some of the scars from the bigger wipeouts. Fun post and good memories! I look forward to hearing or reading more about your adventures.
    David
