I'd love to get your reflections on the day.  What went well?  What didn't?  Where did you feel you really learned something?  What didn't we include that we might have?  What was your best take-away?

I enjoyed the opportunity to reflect on our work and engage with colleagues who had similar goals (and challenges).  There was a lot of peer learning happening and great tips triggering inspiration for new ideas.  I thought the break out groups worked well, but because there were many areas I was interested in, it would have been useful to get some written notes/ideas back from each group.  Thanks Steve.
Great idea on the notes.  The peer learning was a goal, so I'm glad you felt it happened for you.  Cheers! I love the profile picture, btw.  If you ever get to California to see the gold rush sites there, let me know as it's close to us.  :)
Yesterday's session was a great opportunity to explore new 2.0 programs as well as further develop skills relating those already in use. The ability to spend time doing direct, hands-on work was incredbily valuable both personaly and professionlly. It was a wonderful environment to discuss common issues, attitudes and share a range of ideas and networks, of which everyone was so passionate. I've already come back to my office and insisted I now deliver a (slightly lesser quality) training session to engage my own colleagues in this practice. You've given me a great new way to amalgamate my current web practices as well as think about future ways to develop my own portfolio. Many thanks for your expertise and support.
I'm so glad--I can't think of a better outcome than you wanting (and feeling confident) to deliver that kind of training.  It's one of the reasons there's value in using a wiki for the outline and notes, since they then become available to everyone.  Good luck!  I'm sure it will be great!
Hi Steve,

Great day for me, I enjoyed the networking mostly.
My take away was my plan and image of my enhanced PLN & PWP and will now be able to shape that up to have an easier access via coachcarole.net.

I was inspired once more by your coaching.

Mutual admiration, that's for sure!  Can't wait to see what you do. :)

Ian--I'm loving your digital footprint!  It's huge!


I found the day really useful and it was spot-on for content. The hands-on nature of activities kept everyone inspired & focused. I liked what you said about having a purpose to your writing; we have tried to encourage other writers on our school blogs to write 'what they know' or to have a 'hook' on which to hang ideas when you are writing creatively. Many adults are quite nervous about writing on the internet as you know. As Stephanie said, I would also have liked to join other discussions in the afternoon, so any other notes from each group would be appreciated. Many thanks for a great PD, Steve. 

Thanks, Dee.  Maybe some folks will post what they took away from the other sessions.  If not, and there's something of specific interest, I'd encourage you and Stephanie (and any others) to start a forum post on the topic you're interested in (either in our group or in the network as a whole) asking about it!

My takeaways were:

  • it's time to revisit my teaching portfolio as a way of consolidating my digital presence
  • librarians have been talking about library 2.0 and 23 things for some time and I was fortunate to be exposed to many of the tools for building my PLN a couple of years ago
  • I will look at how I  can use igoogle more effectively (more tabs etc...)
  • I am looking forward to learning more about the Australia series http://www.netvibes.com/coach_carole#EpCoP_MOOC_blogs PLN
  • What are MOOCs? Time to find out...

It was an excellent networking opportunity and I made some great connections. Thanks everyone.
