I'm a little bit behind the rest of the class, but I'm diligently working through the assignments in an effort to catch up.
I found that I'm struggling to process all of the information that is suddenly available to us. Currently, I have 243 entries in my Goolge Reader feed for this class alone, including blog posts from other participants, Diigo posts, YouTube and Vimeo uploads, not to mention the conversation happening on Facebook.
With all these connections, I feel wildly without a sense of direction. Which link do I follow? Which conversation do I jump into? Which rabbit hole do I go down?
Thank goodness for Lisa's video, Week 2 Panic. I feel much better about it all. Instead of trying to read everything put out there, I feel more freedom to pick and choose which bits of information are most useful to me personally.
So to that end, I decided to focus on the assignments this week and not so much on the conversations.
