I guess I am not yet done with the Making Learning Connected MOOC. I wrote a poem and then used an app called Tellegami to record it. What I found interesting is that the time limit forced me to do a lot of editing on the original poem. I had to keep narrowing, focusing, removing and reshaping to meet the time requirement, and I think the result is a better poem. Sometimes, forced revision is the best, even if it can be painful.
Here is the poem:
We run along rhizomatic strands of learning,
playing in the semi-darkness
inside this digital moment
We watch to learn;
We make sense of this unfolding narrative
inside spaces that don’t exist, yet do.
Always, there is the sense of someone else there:
An echo of light reverberating like
data points as pulses of experience.
We make to learn;
write to reflect;
share to understand;
Peace (along the strands),
