This is "exactly" where you should place it.  +Alec Couros talked about the idea of moving outside of our little boxes!

+Brian Metcalfe +Ben Wilkoff +Gemma Abellán  Hi everyone. After reading Brian Metcalfe's blog's entry and warghing his video, I wrote the blog entry below. I think Brian summarises what all this is about. #etmooc   #connectivism  
‘…Sharing… it really starts with two ‘Sharing… there’s no comparing with give and take… you can share too! ‘… Sharing… it helps teachers grow ‘Sharing is really caring… ‘cause who you know… is...

Not sure why I thought blog posts need to be long and detailed... maybe that's why I never embraced the idea?  
Just finished watching the Orientation and Welcome recorded session on Blackboard Collaborate. I’ve always felt like a person that has been on top of the technology movement in education, bu...

To wrap up the first week, don´t miss last post from the guys at etmooc (and see the video). It´s full of quite good suggestions and ideas, especially if you are a bit lost, like me :)

Things I have learnt this week?  Well. I have learnt that I have been settled into a happy place in social networking land.  I have a good little PLN going on in Twitter who I tweet and re-tweet with.  However, although I was very happy with this network, I now realise I need to step up a gear.  So this week I have started to get to grips with Google+, and have also made an attempt to organize my social network content (see link).   For the next topic 'Connected Learning' I will try to be organised about what I seek, make sense of, and share.

I am also going to make more comments on other people's blog posts  This idea, as proposed by +Sue Waters in her 'Introduction to Blogging' webinar was something of a revelation to me - I never comment on blogs unless I know the person face-to-face, although I am happy to chat with all and sundry on Twitter.  Obviously a bit of self analysis needed here!  

All in all though, looking forward to next week!

Hello everyone,
Hello from Canada!  I am just trying to get my head wrapped around all this. It's a busy time and I hope I can contribute and learn as much as I'd like to #etmooc! Looking forward to sharing and learning with everyone.

Hey Lisa, I didn't realize you were also in etmooc.  That course totally changed my teaching practice.  Best PD I've ever experienced.

Hi, everyone. Hope you are well. I was just wondering, is it really never too late to do the Introductory video/blog/etc.? I have been following the #etmooc  discussion to the extent that it can be followed - meaning there's likely to be more content than one person can read through in a single day - and yet haven't gotten around to publishing some Introductory materials, i.e. a Who am I? video and so forth In any case, I just wanted to make sure that I can still do it when I get around to doing it.. Otherwise, I just wanted to say hi. I have lots to say about Connected Learning that might come off as counter-intuitive. I can't wait to share my thoughts with the world.. Take care and keep in touch.

Never too late. I'm trying to keep my head above water as well. Lots of inspiring content. Only 24 he's in a day.

Hi everyone. I share my first work for etmooc. It's in spanish because if I try to do it in english, probably I never end it.

I loved that the co-created whiteboards during the Orientation session, but saw that the added text wasn't on the slides provided here.  Has there been something created that includes the added text?

Hi ...It was recommended that one might try a unique way of introducing oneself to the #ETMOOC community. I decided to write a poem which traces my educational journey and then I read it aloud and saved the audio component on SoundCloud. I hope you enjoy "Brian Metcalfe: A Life-Long-Learner".

Take care & keep smiling :-) Brian

MOOCS can often feel overwhelming so I tried to weave  #etmooc into my existing streams of information, making it easier to connect and engage.  Which tech tools have you found useful while organizing your #etmooc experience?
It’s the end of #etmooc orientation week and, for the most part, I think I’ve got myself sorted with the help of several tech tools: WordPress.com: After registering for #etmooc, I sta...

I'll have to take a look at Gliffy - your mention of it was the first I'd heard of it. 

Basic Mindmeister comes with 3 free mind maps. Unlimited mind maps are available for paid accounts and educators get a discount.  I do most of my mind mapping on my iPad so I use the Mindmeister app for more complex visualizations and http://www.fiftythree.com/paper for simpler ones.
