When I signed up for the #CLMOOC this past summer, I wasn't sure what I was getting into. I chose to focus the whole of my vacation on the myriad weekly assignments designed to demonstrate the value of collaboration, remixes, sharing, and PLN. I have no fear of change or trying something new. This character trait, along with an incredible group of facilitators, led to an unforgettable experience and lengthy list of potential programs I could bring to my classroom. Added to that was my excitement reading Teach Like a Pirate, about which I have blogged before. The confluence of these activities has led to what has become an incredible year for my students. I have engaged more students simultaneously than ever before thanks in no small part to a number of Tweeps that I feel need to be publicly recognized. I will, no doubt, unintentionally fail to mention a name. Please, if you recognize such an occurrence, let me know so I may rectify it. Sheri Edwards, Shawn White, Fred Mindlin, Karen Fasimpaur, Charlene Doland, Kim Douillard, Christina Cantrill, Anna Smith, Mallory McNeal, Kevin Hodgson, Maha Bali, Terry Elliott, Mia Zamora, Chad Sansing, Simon Ensor, Susan Watson, Ian O'Byrne, Mary Ellen Banfield, Deanna Mascle, Michael Weller, my success this year is due, in no small part, to your support and collaboration. Never underestimate the power of your reach, even through the wireless connections. Thank you, one and all.
I am a thinker, an analyzer, a searcher of meaning. These are my musings as I piece together my understanding of the world I inhabit.
