Challenged but Connected!

Wow 8 comments on my blog from last night! I'm sitting here in front of my computer with a silly grin because some people thought they needed to speak their piece back at me; little ol' me! It's an interesting feeling that people from Saskatoon, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Australia, and Buffalo Narrows all connected on words I wrote. Suddenly, I don't feel like I'm talking to myself when I write these words. I have mixed feelings though; part of me is going yahoo I'm sharing and another part of me is thinking I better think things out carefully before I publish. I'm still smiling though and thinking that this could become addicting.

And hopefully students will also be motivated to think and write more carefully, because now their audience is much bigger than just the teacher.

Hi Stephen. Like you I played around with the tags of my blog postings today. What was the result? Five postings from people commenting on my idea of using blogs in my upcoming Work Experience class. This is truly an amazing experience. To think that 43 people viewed my blog and 5 people took their time to comment and offer advice and support for my ideas. I think I am understanding the idea of connectivism (and enjoying it).
