#etmooc and #lrnchat: When Communities of Learning Discuss Community—and Produce Results

There was no need this week to read yet another book or article on how to effectively create and nurture great communities. Participating in live online sessions with colleagues in two wonderful communities of learning (#etmooc, using the #etmchat hashtag and a Google+ community for online exchanges, and #lrnchat) provided experiential learning opportunities among those trainer-teacher-learners: participating in discussions to explore what makes our communities attractive or unattractive, and contributing to the conversations in ways that produced immediate results, e.g., a name for a new learning community that is in the early stages of formation in Australia.…

#lovestory: Digital Storytelling project #1

51291341

I wanted to do something with social media – something that could have had a bot with a clever algorithm create. I decided to use Storify to create a love story based on hashtagged key words in a relationship (#lonely_#crush_#flirt_#kiss_#lust_#love_#jealously_#heartbreak_#alone)
[View the story "#lovestory" on Storify]
