Keeping on track is not easy

With all good intentions this week ,I have only made some headway.
Even though I was sure I had read all the books for the online resources to move forward, I had to go over them again.
I guess I get so busy at work with other ideas going around in my head some days its hard to find that extra focus,especially when its something totally new.

Mind interesting concept.Once I got sorted and made a start I completed one for my PLN or Personnel Learning Network and also used the same process for my Mahara folder plan.
It is a easy visual tool and I think will have lots of other uses if I need to show a visual structure for my Committee of Management or a set of instructions.

After I listened to all the interviews about elearning skills sets I am now certain my learning goal is correct.
For others to learn in this area we need to be right at the forefront of the emerging technology.

There are several online Elluminate sessions I try to participate in each week.
The Australia Series ,Community Connect and et@lking.
This weeks impressive tool for me was 'Animoto'.
Reflecting back over what I have just written I have achieved something after all.

Week 4

Glad I have the tracking sheet, mind you I haven't got all of the tasks competed and I am at the start of week 4.
Now that the team task is almost complete I have gone back to the tracking sheet and starting a fresh,I like to start at the beginning and work through in an orderly fashion,tick off as I go.
I have gone back over the workbook ,looked at all the clips and suggested sites,this morning I signed up to the bookmarking site to sort all my links out.

Our team challenge has come together today,I was able to add a voice thread page to our wiki.
This is a web tool where you can add a picture and then record a comment in audio or text, other people can add to this.
A collaborative tool .

One task completed

Just joined Twitter,been going around in circles for about an hour.I am certainly one of those learners who benefits from hands on face to face instructions, a visual learner...Once I get a few pointers I should have it nailed by the weekend.Its going to be a busy week we have a team assignment,I will be learning about another new web 2 tool.

Week 3

The beginning of week 3 in my Reflect & Connect course,if someone had told a month ago that I would be blogging and in my own blog I would have laughed "not me".Well here I am doing just that,I had a little help to set this all up and I think I am getting the hang of it.
I like the way its easy to change the look of my page and I'm sure I will find interesting pieces to add along the way.
This week it will be another challenge,I have been resisting "Twitter",better Google it.
All these new terms Tweet,Tweet-deck, Twittered,Tweeting,Tweet up,Re tweet ...must not forget the Hash tag,even a Twitter -book with a 1,000 pages of info.
I think I will have a cuppa & something Tweet....

Gayles learning goal

My goal is to get my head around all things related to web tools and online learning. 
I can only pass this onto others when I gain some skills, I am not in a teaching role as such but need to keep abreast of what is happening beyond my computer screen.
