Concluding Reflections

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all your good work this semester. I’ve enjoyed reading, and of course engaging in πŸ™‚ the many thought-provoking, respectful discussions that you all have raised regarding the wide spectrum of questions and issues raised by these emerging learning technologies. I’ve also witnessed some inspiring creativity in your podcasts, design blueprints, and tool reviews. Bravo! I’ve also been impressed by your enthusiasm for experimenting with these new technologies. To be sure, whenever trying new tools and approaches, it can sometimes cause a bit of stress, anxiety, or general frustration, but of course, all this tends to get counter-balanced when we experience those rejuvenating “a-ha” moments and sense new opportunities for applying this in whatever context we happen to be working in (Right? πŸ˜‰ ) . So hopefully, you’ve developed some ideas, or the seeds for some initial ideas that you can take with you.

Enjoy the rest of your summer and best of luck in all your future endeavors!
