Day 2 of the Bring Your Own Device for Learning course came and went in a blur. There was lots of communication (the theme of day 2) on Facebook, Twitter and Google+. It was clearly evident that people were communicating, by sharing their thoughts, their ideas and their blogs.
Communication is most effective when it is a two-way process. I accept that communication can be one-way, but I also find it helpful when I receive feedback for something that I have communicated. I am by no means a great blogger, but find it helpful to receive comments on the very few posts that I have made. A lot of the blogs I read yesterday were very insightful; with images, videos, personal views and often a questioning type approach. I found myself exploring some of the issues further and learned a great deal about BYOD4L, but also tips on how to make my own blog more creative.I tried to spend what “free” time I had (not much) reading around the various sites and blogs and making a comment and a LIKE here and there, recognising that people spend a lot of their time in communicating their thoughts with others – I felt that it was important to give a response where I could.
Note to self – keep on blogging (and commenting on other blogs)
