The semester is nearing it’s end and I have to reflect and admit I have been distracted and have been resorting to using Scoop-it for most of my blog posts of late. I love Scoop-it, my page is curated with lots of interesting things http://www.scoop.it/t/1-1-laptops-ipads. But, I have neglected writing and sharing in the way I had originally intended for this blog. So, New Year’s resolution a bit early, but going to try to return to my habits of working and sharing. So my fingers are crossed that I can get myself back into the habit, and it is a habit!!
This fall I joined a few Google + groups/communities. I am finding them to be a wonderful way to LEARN every day. A little like Twitter, but more involved and you can hold a discussion. Even had my pre-service teachers explore snd join a couple groups. But now I am think I need to implement the use in my course. Sadly most college students would not participate unless there is a grade attached. So now I am looking for a good way to create a group for use in my course and get my students to participate. Suggestions welcome.
I have my notifications set to come to an email address, that way I don’t miss the post, sharing, resources and pleas for help.
My favorite communities are
