Round 2 of IMMOOC begins tomorrow! I really wanted to participate in Round 1 but I have this tendency to over commit and with my new job and all... it just didn't seem like the right time. So I didn't participate and I missed out on a TON of learning and connecting.
This round, I'm ready to commit and dig into one of my favorite educational books (again!) from one of my favorite educational friends, George Couros. His tweets and blog are ever inspiring, but if you haven't had the opportunity to hear him speak in person you are definitely missing out! I had the privilege of meeting him a few years back in 2014 at one of our summer of eLearning conferences in Indiana (detailed here) and have since heard him speak several times. We've had some interesting conversations and he's actually the one ultimately responsible for me changing my Twitter name from @LibraryFanatic to @SherryGick (and this blog name as well). I remember him saying he knew I loved libraries & working in libraries, but he had a pretty good feeling I might expand in education to do even more than libraries... He was right. (Thanks George!)
|and yes, I did eventually get my first selfie with George, but not until 2015. |
(Draft blog posts are one of my many downfalls!)
Unsure what IMMOOC is all about? Check it out here. Why not join us? You're sure to learn and connect with some amazing educators around the world! I'm looking forward to learning from all of you. My ever expanding PLN never ceases to teach me new things daily and I'm sure this will be no exception.
