I am a learner on a learning mission. I am determined to learn. I am ready to step into new territory. I cannot stand still.
With one foot on what I already know
The other reaching for something new
I do not blog because I am able. I blog because I am trying to learn how, to learn more, and to learn from the learners who read. I am desperate to learn how to learn.
I don’t screencast because I’m an expert. Instead, I do it to discover.
I learn the least from the end of the journey, I learn more from the journey itself, and I learn the most from the micro-steps. I meet the micro-blunders and learn that, if I let them, they can be the most powerful growth-gifters. They offer rapid-cycle feedback and allow me to unblunder forward into new and further learning.
Standing in a place of new learning gifts me with rich opportunities to reflect. Rehearsing old learning seldom requires reflection. When I dare new learning, opportunities for reflection are abundant.
I share because I want to learn. I need to learn.
Why vox? Why blog? Why tweet? Why chat? Why go out of the way at a conference to meet a new educator? Because I learn so much from that person, and I’m extremely grateful to know yet another educator. What a deep honor!
You are part of my learning journey.
I need you.
I am determined to find my learning by giving it away.
And I am on a learning mission.
