After the official ending of Multiliteracies EVO sesssion, a few reflections on what I’ve achieved and how I want to continue from here.
- Gained new insights into the concept of multiliteracies through Mark Pegrum’s book.
- Reconsidered my views on Twitter and its affordances, together with its sister app Twibes, for teaching and networking (I have to admit I wasn’t much of a fan of Twitter before this session)
- Become aware of the crucial role of tagging in networked and connected learning
- Seen tagging in action on Twitter, Twibes, Spezify, Diigo and Google search during one of the live presentations, and all along the session
- Become more familiar with e-Portfolios thanks to the useful material included in the weekly activities and the modelling provided by moderators and other participants
- Experimented a bit with mind-mapping tools and the presentation tool Prezi
- Experienced the sheer excitement of connecting with like-minded people and sharing with them this learning and discovery journey
My post-evomlit resolutions:
First and foremost, I intend to start working on my e-portfolio. At this point in time, I???m particularly interested in the learning and reflection aspect. The thing is that, at many points during this session, I would go ???Oh, I did something connected with this concept when I took such and such a course. I???d like to get back to that.??? But ???that??? was hidden in some folder and??? who had the time to look for it? It seems as if, for many years, I have been collecting bits and pieces of information and knowledge, but that I haven???t taken the time to reflect on them in depth, or at least, to do that in an organized way so that I could visit and revisit content to look at it from new perspectives. In the digital order, messing is a good thing
, David Weinberger says. But so is the ability to make sense of the mess through the mastery of the necessary literacies (my conclusion) I???m sure an e-portfolio will help me organize what matters to me and plan my future personal and professional development.
And of course I mean to keep in touch with the wonderful and supportive people I???ve met during this session, which takes me to the concept of personal/professional learning networks, another area I???m giving a lot of thought to at the moment.
So much food for thought! I???ll definitely be coming back here (another resolution) Hope to see you around!
