So, what’s the first thing you usually do when you enter a room of folks with some familiar and unfamiliar faces—you introduce yourself, right? So let’s unravel “the introduction” to dive into the Connected Learning principle of equity. The theme this week is Unmaking Introductions. Let’s consider the ways we name, present, and represent ourselves and the boundaries or memberships those introductions create. How do we name ourselves in different contexts—personally? professionally? online? What happens when those contexts converge? How might we take apart our introductions to answer some of these questions? What will happen when we put them back together again to share them in CLMOOC?
So, given the frame and boundaries the #CLmooc Overlords provided, or at least those that I choose to work with, here is my poetic reply to the invitation to Introduce Myself.
Make Cycle One: My UnIntroduction
At least, this is my reply for today. Tomorrow may most certainly be different . . .
