But something was missing - and then she realised - her brain was a massive mind map, with no core goal. But thanks to cheap advice found in twitter and google wave, this explorer cottoned-on to a website (or should I call it a web theme) called 23 Things.
Being a math teacher, the explorer thought this was a great hook or title for a website, so she traced the idea back to its origin - the PLCMC L earning 2.0 website. And although the website started at Thing 23, she was smart enough to look at the very bottom of the post for Thing 21 (she is a math teacher after all :) ).
And so the Journey has begun. Things 1 and 2 are accomplished. And the explorer, in her journey already made some amazing personal discoveries - like HOW COOL IS Articulate as a presentation tool to accommodate differentiated teaching and learning styles.....but, best leave that sideways journey to another day!
The teacher realised that the web 2.0 world was like a candy store, and she wanted it all...NOW! But words of fellow teachers kept gnawing at her...Keep it simple, start small! And so, the explorer determined that she must stay on course on her travels.
And now.......Destination Thing 3!
