‘Mute’ny on the Bloggy

I have been curating/lurking/learning from my experience taking #etmooc.   I am impressed with the sharing on many levels from those participating.  One example would be the YouTube The Cynefin Framework:

 

I have even worked on my pronunciation of Cynefin ;) but participation has to become my next step…

On January 27, 2013 Lynda Hall wrote in her blog The De-tech-tive 4 Teachers the following:

“For well over a year now, my professional goal has been to expand my interaction with the global teaching community.  As you can well imagine, the benefits of developing a supportive and passionate Professional Learning Network (PLN) have been very inspiring and thought-provoking.

To Tweet Or Not To Tweet?

Listened to Dean Shareski’s event last night about sharing.  Sharing is so important that we can never stop talking enough about it!  I had the feeling during the event that we both subscribe to David Weinberger ideas.

Dean’s talk re-emphasized the importance of not only developing my blog but also reading other blogs and leaving comments where appropriate.  Blogs are a springboard to finding people with common interests to populate your PLN.  But it is important your PLN doesn’t become an echo chamber.…

One Small Step For An Expert, One Giant Leap For A Novice

Twitter Introduction

I really appreciated tonight’s presentation as both a refresher-I put my hand up-and a source of good conversation and ideas.  In particular I appreciated that there was no attempt to talk over the audience.  As they say on Twitter, Thnx.

Again the event prompted me to make a decision on whether to create a TweetDeck or HootSuite and stop procrastinating!  Any suggestions one way or the other?…

Orientation

Wondering and apprehension about Orientation left as Alec began the session.  Everyone’s artistic skills improved through repetition on each slide Alec talked about. J  The Orientation in particular lived up to the EtMOOc tag with a lot of creative art being displayed.…
