Thinking about Classroom 2.0, I sometimes feel that jump of excitement that I used to feel as a kid, you know, when your "stomach flips" from being a passenger in a car that goes over a little rise in the road, fast, and lifts you with it-- It's so exciting and satisfying to be part of this group of reflective practitioners. I've learned so much in the past few weeks. When I asked about what tech applications to use for making stories in class out of hand-carved critters, in just a couple of days I was absolutely wealthy with resources, and really good resources, used successfully by inspiring educators (whom I now can call colleagues). When I write about the heart-felt questions on my mind about how to go forth in this brand new age, people validate the questions and add theirs. Answers become apparent through the very process of thinking together; the whole is much more than the sum of the parts. The blogs are inspiring, energizing, pathway-producing. For me, the network is providing an avenue for personal expression and communication, for use of new tools, for connection of like-spirited (very spirited, indeed) individuals who seem to share optimism, idealism, practical knowledge, and unabashed courage about showing one's self as a learner. And since we all are learners, and all--by choice--in this together, we're charting our course into the future. I'm a happy neuron in a new mind.
