After the official ending of Multiliteracies EVO sesssion, a few reflections on what I've achieved and how I want to continue from here.
Gained new insights into the concept of multiliteracies through Mark Pegrum's book.
Reconsidered my views on Twitter and its affordances, together with its sister app Twibes, for teaching and networking (I have to admit I wasn't much of a fan of Twitter before this session)
Become aware of the crucial role of tagging in networked and connected learning
Seen tagging in action on Twitter, Twibes, Spezify, Diigo and Google search during one of the live presentations, and all along the session
Become more familiar with e-Portfolios thanks to the useful material included in the weekly activities and the modelling provided by moderators and other participants
Experimented a bit with mind-mapping tools and the presentation tool Prezi
Experienced the sheer excitement of connecting with like-minded people and sharing with them this learning and discovery journey
My post-evomlit resolutions:
First and foremost, I intend to start working on my e-portfolio. At this point in time, I’m particularly interested in the learning and reflection aspect. The thing is that, at many points during this session, I would go “Oh, I did something connected with this concept when I took such and such a course. I’d like to get back to that.” But “that” was hidden in some folder and… who had the time to look for it? It seems as if, for many years, I have been collecting bits and pieces of information and knowledge, but that I haven’t taken the time to reflect on them in depth, or at least, to do that in an organized way so that I could visit and revisit content to look at it from new perspectives. In the digital order, messing is a good thing, David Weinberger says. But so is the ability to make sense of the mess through the mastery of the necessary literacies (my conclusion) I’m sure an e-portfolio will help me organize what matters to me and plan my future personal and professional development.
And of course I mean to keep in touch with the wonderful and supportive people I’ve met during this session, which takes me to the concept of personal/professional learning networks, another area I’m giving a lot of thought to at the moment.
So much food for thought! I’ll definitely be coming back here (another resolution) Hope to see you around!
