I love #IMMOOC and all the learning and connections in it, but keeping up isn’t easy in a MOOC and it is not supposed to be. The reality of everyday life kicks in. School gets busy, family responsibilities and life gets busy especially in the fall. We are all back to reality.
The nice thing about a MOOC is you can take what you like , do what you like , connect with people that you like ,when you like, how you like.
There are no failures!!!! Learning for the sake of learning is your option … without guilt.
I am grateful that I can particpate on voxer because it suits me to check in anytime from anywhere.
I also like that I can choose when to respond and where to respond and that I don’t have to do it all ( although I am tempted to want to ). So step into the reality and enjoy the learning along the way. If you learn 1 new thing or 100 new things it does not matter. Enjoy the process.
- Connect and share on voxer .
- Read at least two blog posts and make comments.
- Join in the live sessions as much as possible.
- Blog once a week.
- Put into practice somethings I have learned at work.
- Follow the twitter and facebook feeds and learn from the posts.
Thanks to all for sharing . I especially love the live posting on twitter. Voxer peeps you rock , love all the learning. Amazing job Emily Clare @EClare_AHS for organizing and keeping the learning going.
Reality : No matter how much or how little you do in #IMMOOC … YOU MATTER … YOU ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE . You are taking the time out of your life as an educator and person to learn and help others knowing in the end that you will help students … How great is that?
For any of you who are School Counsellors , I know that this week you may have saved a students life that is your reality … so thanks just in case no one has noticed .
Enjoy your reality …

You are so very right! The freedom of being able to just listen, speak when you are really compelled to, reflect on your own, and every other aspect of the #IMMOOC you mentioned really makes it a growing experience however you chose to participate. Thank you for being brave, being a school counselor is a tough vocation, but I am sure, just as you are about your colleagues, that you saved a life, helped a child make better decisions and give themselves and others a second chance, and make the choice of showing up to school this week. You rock!
Thank you for your comments Ro. It is my pleasure being in this MOOC with so many educators like you who truly care!
