Today, I am trying out a blog challenge with gifs to share with you some of the bloggers that have impacted me on this #IMMOOC2 journey. I had no idea how to go about this until I read Tara Martin's blog, Story Power, and was in awe of how her gifs told her story so well.
When you start on a new adventure it can be a bit scary...
On this learning adventure, I hoped I would find more colleagues that share the same passions because collaboration, relationships, and empowerment are so important to growth.
I met Vicki Den Ouden, through her blog about curiosity. I am a bit of a "word nerd" (her term) so I connected with her blog tying the words curious, care, and cure together. If you are intrigued you can read more by clicking on her name above.
Dora DeBoer and Alex Lianne Carter caught my attention with their blog Empowering Language Learners with Technology. They share some innovative ways technology empowers their students. Technology and Language Learners have been a huge part of my teaching and learning this year. Some of my experiences can be found in the blog I collaborated on with Tina Abbott, IT Director from Newnan, Georgia.
Through IMMOOC a lot of information has been shared, but I have learned from what George Couros states in his book, The Innovator's Mindset, that less is more. We need to focus on quality over quantity.
