This week’s assingment was really interesting. I was able to join different communities that I had previously not been a part of. Goodreads.com was a surprise to me. Such an interesting community connecting the books that we enjoy, with so many suggestions and reviews from other readers.
Through the webinar activity I had started to get familiar with EdWeb so it was great to continue exploring thorugh this activity. Though the website seems a little dated, the information that I was connected to was great! I was able to comment and give some feedback on a few questions and posts within the digital technology community.
Google+ has been a staple since the beginning of the BSU program for me. I have really enjoyed going through the ISTE Tech coach community as well as the GAFE community. There were some great articles and posts that I commented on that offered great ideas within GAFE. Since our school is a GAFE school, it was right up my alley.
Finally Common Sense Media Graphite was another community that I have just started with. I was able to find and create a board with resources for problem solving in the classroom. There was so much information (curriculum, tools, reviews, blogs, etc) I will need more time with this site as well.
Overall, another eye opening activity that has brought more info that I seem to have time for! Wow!
