Slice of Life: This One's for the Learners 19 of 31
Tonight I spent the evening with our Digital Maker local group. The Digital Maker Playground is an online community creating around selected makes using a variety of digital tools. As a connected community, we are learning much from one another. Julie Johnson and I are hosting the virtual group that includes participants in a variety of locations around the world. Every other week, we host a Digital Playground LIVE Workshop for local participants who want to have a bit of work time, the support of their peers, or just a little conversation as they create.
Our group is full of people like M who love to learn. The energy in the live workshop, as well as in the virtual community, is contagious. Today happiness is found in hanging out with other learners. I love the constant questioning, the new discoveries, the willingness to try and try again. There's something about being with people who understand there isn't just one way, but a million ways to puzzle something out. There's something about being in the company of people who make you continually change your thinking. There's something about being with other learners on this journey.
Stop by the playground to see the latest creations. Our newest make is "lift a line from literature." Of course, everyone is welcome on the playground. If you like what you see, please join us.
For the month of March I will be participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge hosted at Two Writing Teachers. It will be a busy month of writing, commenting, and learning with this community. This year I've decided to try to focus my writing around happiness. Stop by today's link up to join the conversation or find some great reading.
