Can anybody hear me?
I consider myself to be fairly articulate, and I journal with pen and paper sometimes daily, at least weekly. But I am really struggling with this idea of logging my learning journey publicly. As I read other eci831 students’ blogs, I’m impressed with the flow of ideas and the references to authors and presentations and ideas. I don’t know why I’m stuck. I love teaching my nursing students and I still love learning. We teach our students to critically reflect through journalling. I get the concept. I’m also excited about technology. We couldn’t have imagined the facility of information access it allows the practitioner at point of care, or the power of teaching with lifelike interactive images. Still, I feel awkward and stuck. I’m currently in another online class, an asynchronous leadership course. We are required to discuss various themes weekly. The ideas are flowing quite freely there. But here, with all this potential of connectedness, I feel like I’m lost in the wilderness… Can anybody hear me? Will I be found?
