Ahhh!!! I am so stressed and at moments on the verge of crying. (I just sat here for five minutes erasing then retyping that last line. This goes back to how much do I want to share publicly.) I was hoping that I wouldn’t have to type another “failing” blog post again; just as I thought I was gaining some momentum in class, I am on the downhill of a roller coaster ride.
First, so stressed about mid-term portfolio that I nearly forgot it was blog post day. Speaking about blog posts, mine are all over the place with no real sense of direction. I know our portfolio is a work in progress, but mine’s a hot mess, where I am not even sure I know what I am doing or if I met all the criteria. Totally failing on this one. I’m probably not actually crying because we’ve been encouraged to fail; so that we can learn from it.
Second, I am finding it very difficult to stay on top of this digital world and be mindfully engaged. I know I am very robotic in terms of the way I am playing. It’s not authentic as I would like. This is not only sad but also very frustrating. I am very thankful for those playing well with me and making it easier for me, like “Sam” in A New Culture of Learning.
Lastly, my question! What question!? It’s halfway through the quarter and…?
Truthfully, I am starting to doubt myself in surviving this digital world. Hrmm…maybe that’s the question I should explore. Perhaps, I simply don’t have the digital skills needed to be confidant with digital literacy. Help! (Something hard for me ask for as well.)
