I had every intention of keeping up my blog. I had a nice opening post, a pretty good title and lots of ideas, but then long term memory loss hit and I totally forgot about this blog! Actually I can time it to the exact time that I developed my Second Life avatar, JessieMarie Flanagan, SL has a HUGE learning curve and I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Within a few months I became completely submerged in trying to learn a whole new way of life. I also became an active member of ISTE-SL and a member of the DEN-SL Leadership Council. Around this time I also discovered Google Groups. The time period between April – August was a whirlwind of activity for me.
In April I had the workshop that I blogged about previously. This sent me off on the aggregator and SL trail. I then attended NECC and the DEN Academic Excursion which sent me off into the Twitterverse. Once I got back from all of these amazing experiences I had to start getting ready for a rocky start to a new school year.
I work for a special education co-op and we are in the process of writing curriculum. I did not say re-writing because we have NEVER had a curriculum before. This has led to all sorts of a-ha moments and headaches. We have faced some difficult challenges but also we have encountered some real successes.
Just recently I have had time to think about starting my own blog. My Mother who has been out of tech for a long time has just made a commitment to jump back in with both feet. I loaned her my Will Richardson book and she is a convert! As soon as I heard about her plan to start 2 blogs, I realized that I better get a move on or she might pass me up.
I can’t wait to start sharing all of the cool tools that I have learned about in the last year or so from my feeds, IMs, Twits, and conferences. Please join me on what I am sure will be an exciting journey from here to wherever the wind will take me.
