We'll spend the first two weeks getting organized and establishing personal learning networks.

Your part is to register with some social services and with our weblog, The Daybook; to do some reading and some viewing of videos; and to start responding to those materials on your own weblog, tagging them #en3177 so they can be found by others; and start to locate and link up with others (in this class and out) who share your interests. My part is to seed the resources, help you get registered on the Daybook, and to set up aggregators that will locate your tagged materials and post them to the Daybook.

Expect to get set up with a blog, bookmarking, and tagging on your own. When in doubt, just Google it, check The Daybook, or ask on Twitter.

You're getting set up this week, but you're also trying to learn as much as you can about using the social media tools for locating and gathering materials. You're learning how to incorporate links, how to add things to your blog and bookmarking site. You're getting comfortable with the social side of learning online.

Set Up Activities



As you work through getting set up, be annotating, remixing, repurposing, and sharing what you're doing. Post on your blog your accounts of your work: others can learn from them. Post to Twitter when you make a new blog post, when you have a success, when something goes wrong. Read posts on The Daybook - check in daily, follow the links, and comment on the posts of others to trade ideas and information.

As you set up and read the chapters, just google those ideas and issues and leads that strike you as interesting. Locate information, and bookmark what you find on your bookmarking site. Start tagging posts so you can find them and share them later.
