It’s been a hectic week, what with a family weekend, a fun dog show, still managing the puppy tout seule, and with news of a second Granddaughter from across the pond. Managed to attend the second virtual meeting, which I thoroughly enjoyed even though it was the very small hours for me!
I realised, from other posts (especially liked Carolyn’s video – well done Thinkbirth) that I hadn’t actually checked off everything on the list, so I just watched Clive Shepherd’s “Welcome to the Virtual Classroom“. While the concepts were not particularly new to me (I’m not in education, but reasonably comfortable and familiar with Web 2.0 stuff), I liked how it was organised, and the flow of content. I liked the way synchronous and asynchronous communications were explained – might have to borrow, with attribution of course.
I’ve already posted about what I’d like to get from the course. To make it happen, I need more business!
I also checked out the Slideshare that Sarah blogged (correction – tweeted) on Network Literacy. Looks brilliant – just wish the audio was available. I’ve seen a personal learning network (I think that’s what Sarah posted a couple of weeks ago) and I love the closing quite from Tagore – “Don’t limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time” How true for our course!
Later today, puppy permitting, I’ll start looking forward to Week 3. Anyone who’s really interested in Bagel, check out her blog.
