What stuck from yesterday's session? http://wp.me/p33rPy-P
And wondering are ideas like DNA? Evolving, mutating, and defining of us but not entirely ours?

Hey #etmooc-ers,
My story so far! I hope #etmooc  will help to expand, amplify and strengthen my ability to tell my story and thereby help me to enable my students to do the same.

Hello  #etmooc  world!
I am a Biology teacher of 21 years. This year I have expanded and am teaching (more like developing with) a Social Media course to a mixed age group at our high school. 
Social media more than any other tool, has been the glue, spark and support network that was enriched my work with students over the last several years.
Looking forward to growing and co-learning with this fabulously diverse community!
