This week has been a very odd week for me thus far. I feel like I'm finding my way in (and realizing the limitations of) Twitter. Also, I feel like I was able to be more of an active presence in the discussion this week. As I stated in one of our meta-forums, the questions style of discussion helped me to generate ideas in a way that I thought would be useful for others to deal with. However, my engagement in that forum sort of leaves me burned out for the night and I'm seriously trying to gain momentum to post by blog post on the readings...my brain seriously feels deadened right now!
I'm still struggling with the wiki. I did add a page today but I'm feeling reluctant to make changes to pages that feel like they belong to others. I know I have to get over this but it just feels so strange.
Another aspect of the course that I need to work on is being able to post brief synopses of the articles we've read and make connections. I want to engage all of the material in more depth and my desire to do so, I know, is holding me back from just taking from the readings what I can. So, mainly, I still think I need to continue working on my goals for last week because, although I think I was able to jump in a bit more this week, there is still a lot I could do better.
One strategy I think I'll use to meet my goals more fully this week is to attempt to log on every day (even if for some days I can only be on for an hour). This, I think, will help me in increasing my interactions with others.
Ah, so much meta-stuff involved in this class and still I feel like I'm leaving something out!
