narrative inquiry

Shapes and informs practice as a “window into people’s beliefs and experiences.”

  • Allows for analysis of underlying insights and assumptions.
  • Functions in opposition to elitist scholarly discourses.
  • Issue of time makes NI difficult for research into large groups of people…until now!
Narrative Inquiry

“…narrative has an inherently temporal thread in that current events are understood as rising out of past happenings and pointing to future outcomes.”

Education, York University, Toronto, Ontario. Retrieved from ld-sig.org/files/Bell_TQ36.2.pdf.

Step 4- Tweet Away

Start Tweeting and following other educators as you start to build your online Personal Learning Community (PLC). By the way, Tweeting means to type a brief 140 comment about a topic and hitting submit. You may follow me to start @McGough3R.

step 5 hashtags
Step 5 - Hashtags

A Hashtag is nothing more than a Twitter term for a marker that is added to a tweet in order for it to become part of a conversation thread. This small feature allows users the chance to chat with another Tweeter and also with the entire PLC simultaneously.

Two Established Hashtags:

#SPNchat – Weekly Discussion Group that meets Tuesday nights at 9pm(EST.)

#MSC2011 – Official Hashtag of the 2011 Model Schools’ Conference.

What is a blog?

A blog is short for Web Log.

It allows individuals to publish their own personal narratives.

It is important to read some blogs before attempting to write one. Great examples at Technorati.

Short paragraph or two that focuses on one concept or idea.

Others can comment on your blog and start a conversation.
