Hi! I'm sharing an article I recently wrote on #EdTech for emergency responders and managers. Let me know what you think!  :-)  http://www.ghinternational.com/blog/edtech-for-emergency-responders-and-managers

Daniel, terrific points. Your point about overlooking the emergency plan (that everyone spends so much time on) during an event and instead working with your closest networks, I agree, is probably such a common thing. FEMA actually has an office called the Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships and a "whole community" initiative that pay tribute at least to this phenomenon. MOOCs can be a great way to tie together those networks to learn together in a more social way. An emergency/disaster plan is good to have, but so is a rolodex of necessary contacts and resources.

Finally made time to join the #etmooc  anniversary crew with reflections on what the course has meant to me and what it has inspired:

"#etmooc: Singing Happy Birthday to a Course," at http://tinyurl.com/lsbn86b

Thanks to everyone who has been part of making this a continuing learning journey for me and those I serve.

The lack of time is the huge gorilla in the learning room. It prevents us from getting busy leaders from business, philanthropy, government, etc. directly involved with people who are working to solve complex problems. As MOOCs become more successful, the lack of time to participate will grow. Hopefully solutions will emerge.

Interesting MOOC offer on gamification design applied to education!
Gamification can be used in many areas and almost any task can be fun and engaging so this course could be great for people like: teachers, educators, managers, C-level executives, health and fitness professionals, psychologists or researchers.

Joining #etmooc  colleagues in a live tweet chat yesterday reminded me, once again, what a great community of learning we've managed to develop and sustain here. One of the interesting side issues that came up, thanks to a comment posted by +Christina Hendricks, was how to explain the MOOC experience to someone who hasn't yet had any experience along those lines. I suggested that Christina's blog summary at http://blogs.ubc.ca/chendricks/2013/08/20/a-record-of-my-etmooc-experience-2013/ was one of the best introductions I had seen; would encourage anyone who hasn't yet seen it to a) read it, b) post links to it, and c) use it as MOOC ambassador's tool to spread the word on the pleasures and rewards of adding MOOCs to our learning landscape. Also loved the following from +Tina Photakis(@Tina_P):"What's a MOOC like? --- Tell them it's like being in a pub with 2000 of your closest friends."

It would appear we've come full circle in about 24 hours: from our latest #etmooc community reunion yesterday and the acknowledgement of what that community means to its members--as reflected in Christina's wonderful article--to the #lrnchat discussion of community/communities a few hours ago and a return here to one of the #etmooc watering holes. Now all we have to do is read the rest of the articles and longer explorations mentioned in both communities' online chats and see where they lead us. More links to follow, without doubt.

#etmooc  has nudged me to become more involved with social media and connecting deeply with educators through blogging. Thanks to this community and the people I continue to interact with on Twitter, I've joined forces with two other incredible educators to develop #mbedchat  connecting educators in our province. Thank you all!

Because my cloning machine is not yet working, no.  ;-)  Sounds like a very worthwhile MOOC opportunity, however! Thanks for sharing!

Here is the Storify of Tuesday's #etmchat, it was fantastic to see you all, listen to your stories and see you reconnect. This archive took a long time to create because there were so many different conversations, retweets and so much #etmooc  love (there were almost 400 tweets.) I couldn't keep them all. I hope I didn't leave out anyone's voice. I tried to group tweets by conversation, or what I thought were conversations, I know I missed a lot.

It is great to see so many sharing your posts I have a lot of reading to do. Susan is hosting Post Etmooc hangout(s) on January 24, Tuesday at 7:30pm MST, we'd love to see you there. You can participate through the #etmchat  Twitter stream if Hangouts aren't your thing (or your bandwidth's thing.)

Please keep in touch.

Thank you for taking the time and the energy to organize that chat and then storify it. As I was teaching during most of it I loved being able to go back and read through the story lines. I agree it was and continues to be a magical experience.

despite (or perhaps because of) having lived and taught in many time zones, I tend to the TZ-dyslexic so always have to double check, even for my own time zone

It’s been a whirlwind year since #etmooc began and we started to connect, collaborate and share together. Although we have enjoyed reading blogs together, what we have enjoyed the most is staying connected with all of you Post Etmoocers.

Starting in January we are shifting the focus of this community from blogs to the #etmooc community and staying connected. We’ll use this place to share what we are up to, and hopefully reconnect. 

We’ll be hosting a #PostEtmooc Anniversary Twitter Chat on Tuesday Jan 14th at 7:30 MST.

Come join us and share what you have been up to since etmooc and the effect that etmooc had on you and your practice. 

Since we are all busy we only are planning to hold one event a month, but since January is the anniversary of the start of #etmooc we are also holding a hangout.

Old Times Sake Google Hangout Jan 21 at 6:30 MST. 

We’d love if if you joined us for the chat, or the hangout or just share what you are up to here in our Google+ Community.

Please consider making an Anniversary  blog and or blog post sharing all you are doing now or have learned from taking part in ETMOOC. Share your gratitude!

#etmooc strikes (with inspiration) again: Attending the #etmchat  session earlier this week (with discussions on themes including what a great community came out of the #etmooc  experience) and then engaging in similar discussions about community with #lrnchat  colleagues one day later (yesterday) led to yet another set of reflections on #etmooc , community, and learning: http://tinyurl.com/mp7xpjm. Thanks to +Susan Spellman Cann,  +Christina Hendricks, +Helen Blunden, and everyone else involved in creating community through collaboration.

Thanks for your responses and for forwarding the survey. It is now closed.
There was definitely gold in those responses, and I appreciate your taking time to help me plan for online students.
