In honor of my Alaskan SEACCR colleagues, the reflection in this photograph seemed fitting. Really quite a beautiful image and landscape. I hope to see some of the Alaskan landscape in person at some point. Until then, I will have settle for arresting secondhand glimpses.
Despite delays in Week 2, I have been trying to play a bit of catch-up. I felt like I had a pretty strong opening SEACCR week only to run into a few obstacles which I mentioned in a previous post. Plus, I felt like it was always going to take me a bit longer to fashion a research question. In may respects, I am still getting to know my students, which definitely impacted where I thought I might spend some time sharpening focus.
In terms of contributing to others learning, my contributions were split this week. I jumped into the Twitter chat on Tuesday, which was very warm and inviting with a group not so large as to completely become lost in the flow.
From there, the week got a little pear-shaped and I was chasing until Sunday. As this third week started I have tried to go back and comment on some classmates’ blogs, which is proving a lot easier when people use WordPress, instead of Blogger. For some reason the Blogger sites are lot more fickle with the commenting. Still, I try to reach out to three or four people each week
