Hello! I am Matt Hoge and I teach Seminary for the LDS Church. I am in the BSU EDTech graduate program because my employer strongly encouraged me to complete grad school. This is my last class! (besides portfolio). I have really enjoyed the EDTech program and have learned a lot. I am taking this course because I had an extra elective and I have always been interested in the power of social networking in learning. The statistics of the amount of time and users in social networking is incredible and I think it’s a powerful tool I would like to use more effectively. I hope (and expect) this course will help me to learn about Social Networking and how to implement it into learning.
Below is a picture of my family. From L to R: My wife Cassie, 3 month old boy Coulson (below), 5 year old Chesnie (above), me, and 2 year old Corban.
This is a video I made to introduce myself in EDTECH 501. Needs a little updating but for the most part it describes me!
