Reading, blogging, and commenting takes time- way more than I care to admit. In addition to working for this class, my co-counselor S and I are putting more effort on our on-line presence. Looks good, but it takes me about 3 days for one blog entry start to finish. Too slow. I started this post on September 15th, and here I am 5 days later.
Read Bloom’s taxonomy digitally. I suppose we are to think about this in relation to students’ learning in our classrooms. Honestly, I wasn’t thinking about the students at all when I was reading the article. I was only thinking about myself. How do I fit into this taxonomy? How am I doing as a learner? Taking the COETAIL course is my attempt to progress from lower order thinking skills like understanding to higher order thinking skill of creating. I have always wanted to share my voice, and here is my opportunity to learn.
Initial overwhelmed feeling with this course is gone now. After attending the weekend workshop on becoming a networked educator, I feel energized and more connected to the wealth of knowledge out there. My learning community keeps on getting bigger and bigger.
