24th thing


Wow, am I jazzed. We had a follow up to our 23 thing program earlier this week and I got excited about the process of learning all over again. I think I want to be a perpetual student. Except I can't figure out how to pay tuition and still have money to do what I want. The dilemma of the perpetual thinker, or nosy nora as I was called as a child who always wanted to know what was going on around me.

Okay I have now gotten way way off topic. I am supposed to be blogging about my 24th thing and what I want to accomplish. It never occurred to me that while preparing to teach a class I would be learning also. It just hit me in the seminar that that was my learning contract goal.

I have noticed since I came here that a lot of people don't know how to open an email account but they want to learn and it is hard to help them fill out the form while helping the other 14 people in the computer lab. So several weeks ago I asked to be able to create and offer a class on opening an email account. So I am in the process of creating my very first powerpoint presentation and writing a curriculum for the class.

So while I am finding material and learning how to create a powerpoint presentation I will be fulfilling the goals of my learning contract and one of the key ideas behind learning 2.0 and I didn't even realize what I was doing. How cool is that?

I had mentally answered all of the questions in the contract but I hadn't put any of it in writing. Now I have a completed learning contract and a thought out plan on creating this course.
GO ME!

    Oh my Goodness! How am I ever to compete with that? Stupid stupid rat creatures, I still can't figure out my 24th thing. Sigh.
