Being able to be part of this learning community for three years now feels like being part of the cool club. I’ve drank the Kool-Aid and it’s quite tasty!
Each session on Twitter that Danielle and I ran, I learned something new. By no means am I a Twitter expert, so discovering new people to follow, new aspects of Tweetdeck, and new strategies to grow my PLN reminded me of how grateful I am to be a learner for life.
I am excited to explore Flubaroo, No More Red Ink, linking Doctopus with Google Classroom, and Goobric when I have some downtime to digest everything I’ve been exposed to today.

As I write this, you are running along the Lakeshore in the Half-Marathon! I hope it’s going well!
One of the reasons Justin and I enjoy Cohort 21 so much is that we get so much out of each and every session – it look like you and @brenthurley are on the same page as well! It’s a great to learn new things and see things from a new perspective when you are having to explain these tools to ppl who have never used them before!
I would also recommend that you check out @hapara as it is a great solution for distributing, assessing and returning student assignments via googledocs!
Great work yesterday!
Great reflection! I agree 100%. In working with Classroom, Doctopus and Goobric, I found it really useful as a place to submit any and all work to get quick effective feedback from me.
In speaking with Garth, we share the same issue on Classroom – the organisation of it. To quote Garth – “It’s linear and we all know learning isn’t”. Kids find it hard to find things but the assignment feature helps them to organise what they need to do.
I would love to Hangout sometime if you’d like to see an example and I’d love your feedback in return – I’ve got one more week of my MOOC, so I am expecting a lot more free time to dedicate to Cohort21!
