I’m thinking now about incorporating 3D Flipbooks and Web stories as a way to present their thinking, in addition to discussion posts. There’s some scaffolding that needs to take place though, and I need to think about how to best do that

This part about identity work really resonates. It also makes me think of the artifacts of embarrassment/rejection of my own family’s values. For example, (I write about this in one of my pieces for this class) about these knives my dad passed down to my from ancestors that fought in a war— the knives are from the Philippines— I reject/am embarrassed of these objects in my lineage as they are not allowed to be a part of my identity (although I begrudgingly acknowledge it is a part of history), and go against the idea of nationalism, etc…

Very true Elizabeth, I used a little imagination in my profile. However, I don’t think I was very creative. I think I lack much more creativity. But the truth is, I hope to get it since I’m going to be working with children and I’m going to have to find it there.
