Listening, Lurking, Learning
The current MOOC – Education, Learning and Technology – #change11 – began some weeks ago. Having known about it since George Siemens first announced the current MOOC in the summer, only now am I crossing the boundary of lingering, loitering and visibly participating on the course. I have attended some live sessions, and naturally enjoyed reading the many contributions by participants in their #change11 blogs.
Stepping from the shadows into the light takes time. Time to make sense, time to question, time to connect.
All connections are crops. Fragmentary beads of light and life, of knowledge and knowing, learning and sharing. As crops connect, so too is awareness raised, contributing to the dynamic collective consciousness which impulses one forward. New fields of knowing, new energies to share and pass on to others.
This blog is about crops – connections between windows of questions, reflections, and being an active participant on a MOOC.
As I begin my process of planting, cropping, reaping connections, my sincerest thanks to all current participants who have shared and taught me so much so far.
