I had always imagined my ‘final’ reading week to be a carefree experience and I would be somewhere hot, like Mexico, at an all inclusive resort with my family. But life happens so instead I have been a hermit, trying to make headway on my assignments, buried under work for almost a week!
I have gotten some things done, but I have been spending a lot of my time on Twitter, and other websites, sifting through a ton of resources! I’ve found help in Twitter because I have been able to look for opinions from other teachers about things like different blogging sites, as well as digital storytelling sites.
I have added many things to my wiki, but I don’t think I am anywhere near done! I know I will never be able to exhaust all resources, and that is what makes this so difficult! I’m trying to incorporate things that I really feel will be useful to other teachers. I don’t want to fill my wiki with fluff so I am playing with many resources to see if there is merit to them!
I have decided to take a break from that assignment for a while, and I am now going to begin working on my blog-folio. I have to laugh at myself because by no means am I a procrastinator, but when I am really worried about “getting something right” or producing my absolute best work, I always put it off. I guess I stay in the “pre-writing stage” for as long as possible to plan! I just hope that I am able to produce something that will help me to stand out!
