My presentation went live yesterday a.m. I’ve already received some positive feedback from some of my Twitter followers/friends, and that’s been nice to hear/read/see, especially given my anxiety over this particular event. I really enjoy presenting my work to the public; in fact, the larger the audience the better for me. However, this form of presentation is completely new to me. Preparing a “packaged” multimedia presentation turned out to be a ton of fun, but a ton of work. As I become more facile with the technology, I imagine I’ll be less anxious doing this sort of “digital storytelling.” And, I can imagine myself doing more and more of this sort of work to integrate into my courses as well.
As I wrote on Twitter, this a.m., I’m finding the K12 Online conference to be like Chanukah only longer. I get new gifts every day; in fact, four new gifts every day for two weeks. And that doesn’t count the fireside chats and other “live”/synchronous aspects of the conference. Speaking of which, I hope you’ll join me and the other presenters from this week at the fireside chat this Saturday, October 25 at 11:00 a.m. EST.
