Wow, it's been a long time since I came into Classroom 2.0 and added to the site in any way. I have been so busy with other tasks. I started my own blogsite and have been working on that. I have written articles for Terry Freedman and Steve Hargedon. I have interned at the Webcast Academy, learning to produce and host online shows. And, of course, I've been busy with school.
So I wonder now, does Classroom 2.0 still have a place in my life? It was my jumping off point into the world of online collaboration and helped me make many fabulous, lasting connections. But will it still help me with my goals?
I came back because I am setting things up for a class I am teaching on Web 2.0 applications. I plan on having my students begin as I did, right here. Creating a page, taking part in discussion forums, joining groups, and meeting people.
And what I realized when I came back is that, yes, Classroom 2.0 still meets my needs. I can still connect with like-minded people, still get involved in thought-provoking conversations, and still play with exciting tools. And the interesting thing is, so many of the friends I have in Second Life, the Webcast Academy, twitter, etc. are the same friends I have here. So, Classroom 2.0, I'm back and excited to be here! Did you miss me?
