Congratulations to Rhonda who wrote comment no.50 on my blog – unknown to my vast (ha ha!) array of readers I have secretly been hoping to get 50 comments or more on my blog before the end of the PLN program and it happened on Saturday – whoo hooo!
Luckily for me (cos I save on postage for the prize – a bottle of bubbles) it was a friend and colleague Rhonda (What a journey Lynn! You definitely have helped to drag MESC staff out of the dark ages. I hope you never lose your interest in helping us!) Comments such as this and the support of a personal learning network are what keep me inspired in the world of online learning.
So a big THANK YOU to everyone else who has contributed and shared this journey with me – hope you continue the ride!
So what have I learnt this week after completing Week 3 of the PLN Project on Professional Learning – just how supportive you all are when we have only just ‘met’. Thank you to everyone who helped me out earlier this week when my computer had a ‘mini meltdown’ resulting in me losing my blog subscriptions, tweet followers, and gmail account.
I was unable to attend Anne Mirtschin’s Elluminate session ‘live’ but did watch the session later than evening at home. I do wonder how a live Elluminate session will work at my library now as we have changed ISP this week and I have watched previous sessions at home. I’ll soon find out. I like being able to attend PD in my own time (sorry family!) and the fact that I can re-watch sessions at my own pace. It was also good to see much happening on Twitter after the event as well.
It is very hard to rank my top ‘professional learning’ tool this week but I do think that the Elluminate webinars, whether they be via Learn Central, Australia Series, or other links are very hard to go past. They are available to anyone, easy to refer to, and allow everyone to get as involved as they feel comfortable.
