Who doesn’t like a challenge, especially a good ol’ blog challenge !
These days there seem to be SO MANY to choose from ! I’m excited about answering Vicky Loras’s “What’s Your Story” challenge and joining the 20+ who have shared. Likewise, I hope to do a language plant as I’m excited about David Warr’s new language plant maker, and his challenge to PLN to start making their own plant creations.
However, today I’m going to reach beyond what is my core PLN to a blogger who’s been sharing wonderful resources and whom you might not have crossed paths with. Beth Crumpler at Adaptive Learnin’ challenged her readers to give Tagxedo (much like wordle) a whirl and to create a word cloud with their twitter profile or blog. Feel free to join in and do check out Beth’s blog for interesting EdTech posts.
(your name might’ve popped up… can’t figure out how it choose ‘em, but there they are)
I think both demonstrate how my online presence is community-oriented, how it’s personal through connections with other educators and how there’s quite a bit of joy and fun in the process. It also shows a language geek side, and how I’m exchanging mostly with ELT teachers around the world. I dig it !
