Oh how I love my new style of learning. It is totally AWESOME!!
Unable to attend a great conference at State Library of Victoria today where Alec Couros was leading a discussion on Personal Learning Networks, I jumped online Saturday evening, a few hours after the close of proceedings, and avidly read through the TweetDoc which was posted soon after the end of the event.
I’ve now been glued to my computer for the last couple of hours reading through the tweets, picking up the vibe, wandering off to ponder some of the links posted during the day and then connecting – virtually – with some of my PLN buddies who are like ‘old friends’.
Conscious of trying to maintain that log of professional learning that VIT encourages, I decided to complete the VIT proforma that I endeavour to complete at the end of professional learning sessions attended:
I then quickly jotted down my own thoughts and reflections about the conference proceedings.
At the end of it I’m left with a warm glow – though probably not as warm as those who actually attended and had the joy of meeting f2f with their PLN buddies – of having added to my store of learning via yet another powerful virtual online experience!
