I was introduced to Web 2.0
almost 2 years ago during a presentation of some of our teachers who had attended the first Web 2.0 conference in Shanghai. From there I learned about K-12 Onine Conference and I was off and running in many different directions with not great focus. I have often described my learning online as have Internet ADD. use RSS feeds
, I can't really say I blog though I do have two registered in my name, I have Diigo
, FAcebook, Flickr,Delicious accounts. I have a class website that continues to grow and develop. I attend conferences when I am able to do so. (I live in Beijing so that is not always possible.) I am proactive in my learning. I am a big fan of Ning and Wiki's. I listen to podcasts and my class has made Voice Threads. We have participated in global collaboration projects through Skype and a webcam. I am not a newbie when it comes to Web 2.0
I fell passionately in love with this exciting area and all of the possibiltiies so much so that after waiting 34 years I decided to get my master's degree in Integrated Technology through Walden University
. I will graduate next May and I am loving the experience but there is definitely something missing. I need more....and yet I am not totally sure what the "more" is that I need.
Maybe "more" is learning about new software and applications. I do know that I need to not just jump here and there but I need some sort of logical way of learning, taking online courses or whatever that can also appear as part of my PLN.
Does anyone have the same problem? Does anyone have any suggestions???? I want to grow and I want to learn continually and also be able to bring things into the classroom though that opportunity is a bit limited at the moment.
