It is with some trepidation that I have chosen to take up the Global2 blogging challenge. Trepidation because – I am wondering how much time will I have to invest, can I add another thing to my plate, how far can the rubber band stretch before it snaps?
However, the next step in my journey is to become more active in building communities and building a network, it is time to give up lurking and time to start contributing. Without risk there is no learning – so here goes. I am committing to the G2C11 challenge.
A blog that I often visit is Students of Mitch Hughes. As an advocate of online learning and the power of Web 2.0 tools this blog is one I often show our junior teachers as a fantastic example of blogging in the junior grades. I have also discovered new ideas and tools from my visits to this blog. The use they make of video to share learning is inspirational.
This blog inspires me to be more proactive with the use of our 5/6 blog, which has ground to a halt recently. I think sometimes I spend too much time exploring different possibilities rather than sticking to one thing. We need to decide our purpose for our 5/6 blog and then make it happen.
