I fully understand that learning is not an event but there are still moments or experiences that have bigger than usual impact. Okay, I realize there’s only 4 so sue me.
- TLt and the Twitter break through….I wasn’t even supposed to be part of the presentation but a last minute invite led to the moment I got twitter thanks to the help of Alan, D’Arcy and Brian….(maybe this will make Alan’s list)
- BLC and Summer Camp….having never been to summer camp, I imagined it to be like this. Having time to pick the brains of those you learn from everyday, laughing, joking and developing friendships, truly enhanced my learning network.
- ECMP 455 and seeing if this stuff really works…being able to test the power of my network in a formal setting and observing the power of social learning in action. It works.
- Manitoba Homecoming….spending time with some great bloggers in my old stompin’ grounds. Playing with boundaries.
Definitely these events helped further my exploration of personal learning, social learning and playing with boundaries. I plan on some more of these in 2008. Some potential events include: FETC, TLT,(inviting all twits to attend and receive your free EdTech Posse mug) NECC and another go at ECMP, but I’m sure they’re be others.
Update: Thought I’d try adding music to the slideflickr.com option…Not good…annoying.
