Well this is my first blog and that brings up the first characteristic I think is important for being successful in this MOOC. Being open to learning and using new technology that will improve my learning as well as the learning of my students is very important. I am not used to much of the new ways of communicating as have just this semester learned how to tweet. I was quite proud of myself, yet still very nervous. After discussing my class and the format with a couple of other people I’m beginning to understand what the MOOC is all about. So for characteristics to be successful I need include being open to the new and willing to try it out and dedicated to working with the new item regularly to become more familiar. I know this will make me more comfortable with this new tech. I need to be interested in learning and engaged actively in my own learning as well as others. Group discussion leads our learning in ways that individual and independent learning does not. I have to admit I’m excited to learn all this new technology but am concerned that it will interfere with both my job and my family. I am very dedicated to my job and equally dedicated to my family. I can only hope that this class can be taken in moderation and that neither it nor my work and family suffer.
