Here are my final reflections on our journey through OLTD 505. I struggled with this last activity, as there was so much I wanted to try. As a result, I found myself scattered in my thinking, so I decided to go back over areas that I hadn’t had enough time to explore during prior weeks. I was surprised at how much more I learned and discovered (and how much I had missed)… although this shouldn’t really be surprising, given the affordances offered by the Web. Unfortunately, I ended up doing too much exploration and not enough creation (it’s funny how I can’t seem to get the right balance). Anyway, the following video isn’t flashy, fancy, or particularly creative, but it has helped me to consolidate a few of my takeaways from the discussions, videos, readings, and insightful comments that have lit up my notifications and feeds over the past six weeks. Feel free to fast forward or pause as needed!

So, thank you Cohort 3 for supporting my thinking. I think we’ve done a great job of moving forward as a collective group, and I have no doubt that together we can demonstrate the positive results of contributing to the greater good. This contribution, I feel, is fundamental to open education and connected learning. Finally, a huge thank you to Dr. Alec Couros for his ability to intrigue, inspire, and motivate others to become better, not just for themselves, but for those around them, and for the generations depending on them to make good, ethical, and moral decisions with regard to navigating and contributing to the networked world. Thank you!
