Digital Vibes

Digital  v i b e s  are floating all around me. I can feel the energy and sense the emotional excitement. New apps are being experimented with; seeds of ideas are germinating; small creations are happening. With nature photography as a backdrop for spinning thoughts, I sit and wonder. On which path will ny new explorations take me?

What's in store for a week of sunshine and possibilities in the digital world?
  1. #reflect31 has started and I already created my first digital vibe. A trip to the Cape May Winery on Sunday provided a reflective afternoon with family and the seed of inspiration. I decided to transform the scene into an inspirational poster using the app, Mobile Monet. The app did indeed provide the Monet moment for a 3 word visual to guide my digital journey this month. 
  2. Also, the surroundings allowed me to engage in one of my favorite pastimes: word-weaving. A poem about the afternoon experience grew from the words that spun around my head. Perhaps, the following poem will find a place in the newest gallery, Summer Splashings, that I am designing. You can access information here
  3. When I was asked to be a guest moderator on #saskedchat and mulled over what topic I should concentrate on to engage connected educators in a collaborative conversation. Since recent days have been filled with the wonder of new sights, I decided "Discovering Wonder" would be appropriate. I created a digital flyer using PicMonkey, a QR code to upload the flyer at www.qr-code-generator.com, and an #eduinspiration for Thursday night's chat.

Digital vibes will be a topic of interest this year as the new school opens a world of passion projects, creations, and PBL activities in and out of maker spaces. I am delighted to share my space with you and hope that the world of digital poetry and photography will enhance your learning this year as mine.
