Just finished watching the Orientation and Welcome recorded session on Blackboard Collaborate. I’ve always felt like a person that has been on top of the technology movement in education, but now I feel a bit behind! I know that compared to many of my colleagues at school that I am on top, but there is so much to learn out there!
Seeing the co-created whiteboards in the session with the participants adding to the slide was as awesome as seeing students co-creating a Google Doc together, and the enthusiasm when they saw each other adding to the document. It gives me chills just thinking about it.
I saw somewhere that it is common to feel overwhelmed with MOOCs. They aren’t kidding! I have a diigo account, but I so very rarely use it, that I almost forgot it was there! With the ability to link my bookmarks to any Google Chrome browser, the need for an online bookmarking tool fell away, but now I realize how important it is for sharing… and sharing is truly what is all about, isn’t it?
Time to go familiarize myself with Diigo again, and get that IFTT working for me!
