My Water Wings



PHOTO’s during para- sailing at Catalina island last spring. I thought they were appropriate as this was the last time I took a major RISK.


So tonight was my first real time chat and it started out a little rough.

5pm rolled around and I’m sitting alone in the blackboard room.

Thankfully my problem solving skills kicked in, and rather than giving up I did a little searching…. my G+ calendar indicated that I was actually supposed to be in Twitter (who knew that you could click on the calendar to get more details on the event)..

Realizing that I now needed to try out twitter I accessed the following resources
for the love of learning: Twitter is sold wrong

I realized that most people knew a lot more than I did, so my strategy was to engage others through asking them about terms they used which I didn’t previously know. Doing this I learned

twitterfall,, Websites that allows you to follow a hashtag – edit the speed and auto adds the hashtag to your tweets

a tool like hootsuite or tweetdeck lets you set up columns

Evernote as a great online filing cabinet. Great organizational tool.

G+ Hangout it ‘s real time video conferencing via google+ great way to have a conversatio … here’s their’s a super easy tech to use

The General tone I received from this strategy was that its ok not to know. And that people are proud to be able to share theire knowledge with others.

  2. Hi Erin

    You have made me feel so much better! I also got the date wrong and had log into the Blackboard Collaborate session. My mistake was a bit worse because I’m doing the Intro to blogging session and was a day early.
