This is interesting Frankie, I must be honest I did think you were in fairyland or some imaginative world, when you kept posting like that...it was unrelenting at one point
I think, it is great that you have been bold in sharing you thoughts, about what you feel you have learned in this MOOC, and the threads you have chosen to engage with. It is different to a blog eh.
What I mean is, reflection for me requires incubation time, and I notice you took some time to return with your thoughts... and while on the one hand creating a blog is an artifact for consolidation/sharing, for me-the descriptive narrative-nature of blogs put me off! I love reading others' blogs, don't get me wrong, but horses for courses eh.
To elaborate, when I learn new stuff/experience new things/develop my knowledge and so on, it stays in my head, gets sorted across different frames, then when I come across something whereby I see a connection=Bullseye! I create a big picture from those bits of information I sifted and framed-created depth and will seek out further info to add to what I know, so creating further depth and put the puzzle together. That is how I work with my own meta-cog/higher order thinking...and I like to resort to base level links in my thinking too-at the same, Toffler-Style
So, blogs are tricky for me, because they are monologues and my monologues need time for incubation and are ever-evolving. I struggle with permanency of ideas....thought. Engaging with others....that is a different permanency.....it is dynamic...and that dynamism pickles it.....restores its authenticity.
Just as you have done here Frankie.
A very subjective response from me. (sorry, typed some of this in word and don't have the energy to change fonts to align-tired this evening!)
I suppose, this is a tip of the hat for forums.
I must say, I am fascinated as to why you stopped at 30!
