Transforming learning through global collaboration
Third times a charm - First time, I saved a draft and can't figure out where one goes back to get the doc to edit. 2nd, lost power, 3rd, well, here we go.
What: I have learned that being connected is going to require some effort on my part to stay focused. One thing I've learned is that there are layers, upon layers, upon layers of places one can go. I find myself connecting to some of the sites mentioned in the chapter and from there find something interesting and go to that, and so on. I also learned that I have two ning accounts - must have been that focusing issue!
I read some of the blog posts dealing with "connect and reflect" One person mentioned Powerful Learning Practice - and I found some interesting information on PBL - I'm implementing PBL in my graduate course this semester, so this is of interest to me - also found out there's a fee - other things on the site, however, are free.
Classroom 2.0 is another site. I saw Julie's post about Flat Classrooms. Global education and connectivity seems to be its focus. I had heard of Classroom 2.0, just hadn't gotten to the site yet, so it was good to look it over.
So what: So, it helps to see all these folks connecting and provides a lot of possibilities
Now what: To take that first step!
