Hope I am not overdoing it
Hi from freezing Beijing. We have had more snow so far this year than we have had total in my five previous winters here.I am really looking forward to this course which I will fit in between teaching and my Masters because it is something I want to do and to learn. I have come across of things though that are frustrating though I have found a way around some of them. As I live in Beijing I have to put up with the Great China Firewall. For those of you who have free access count yourself very fortunate as there are many, like me, who are blocked off sites because the government has blocked them. There is no real rhyme or reason to the blockage sometimes but you have to deal with it. At the present time pbwiki is blocked and always has been, twitter is blocked and any feed that is tied into twitter is also. I am using a secure tunnel that while it slows me down does allow me access the pbwiki site but unfortunately I for some reason even with the tunnel I cannot access anything with Twitter. This is a new level of blockage and quite frustrating as I have always been able to access the feed. Anyway, while I won’t be able to be part of the Twitter group I am really looking forward to learning more about multiliteracies.. I have spent the last two years in my PLN being a lurker. My goal for 2010 is to be an active participant in everything I am involved with on the internet so here is my first blog on this site.
