After posting at the beginning of October, I had an epiphany as I watched myself click on the same folder in my iPhone (& iPad) hour after hour; too many times during the day to even count: Connect
Aside: Yes, I'm one of "those" people who organize my apps into folders. I can't stand to have page after page of apps. I like them grouped together by task/function. Yes, I realize this is a bit obsessive. Deal with it.
I truly do love to connect.
I connect DAILY with many different people in many different online places and discuss various topics:
- my blog
- Blackboard Collaborate
I also connect on Instagram but it's in a different folder...:)
Are all of my conversations/connections related to education and/or libraries? Nope. I'm not just a one-sided person. I have other interests and hobbies too!
Do you need to connect in all of these different places? Absolutely not! But I truly do recommend finding one or two that suits you and giving it a try. Connecting daily always brings me new ideas and inspires me.
So now that we're beyond Connected Educators month...let's continue to CONNECT...in old and new ways!
