Struggling with counterintuitive idea

The way to get a handle on content overload is to create more content.  An interesting idea presented in the Powerful Learning Practice material.  My initial thought it that it just makes more “noise.” Granted it may be short noise (as in tweets and retweets) but it’s still mostly noise.

However….if I do what I always do, I’ll get what I always get.  I’m sticking my toe out of my comfort zone to see what happens.  I’ll try to create the content I would like to read, and see how it goes!

About to jump headlong into 2.0

I signed up with a Powerful Learning Practice team at school, and the idea is I will learn to be a more comfortable, creative and participatory user of web 2.0 media.  Why am I doing this? To understand why the “new way” is better than the “old way.”  To not be one of the people who says “When I was in school…..”  and then tells a story involving a chalk board and a telephone call (on a land line.)  To become a better educator.  I think that by knowing more about all the choices available, I can then pick the ones are the most workable for whatever I am trying to do at any particular time. 

And because I trust Gail Corder, our leader, and the members of my PLP team, and this gives me a chance to know all of them better as well.  Ah….connected learning.
