Introducing myself...

My name's Gemma and I try to participate in #etmooc.
I studied Audiovisual Communication in UAB (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) Currently, I'm studying a Master about TIC and Education in UOC (Universitat Oberta de Catalunya). I've known about the Connectivism and MOOC making a work for the university a month ago and it was amazing. I think that the best way to know about it is involving  in this experience
Nowadays, I'm working in Barcelona as a teacher of New Technologies in a project named "Antenes Cibernarium", training for begginers, mainly adults, older people and unemployed.
I'm very interested to learn about Digital and Media Literacy.  Three years ago, I worked in different projects about Media Literacy, throught using video and radio, giving tools to explore the auto expression, language competences... at schools and social centers.
It's difficult for me to participate actively in this MOOC experience because my English is bad (you can notice it... but I'm learning...) and sometimes I can't express my thoughts and I have difficulties to understand. The language is a little problem for me in that experience, where the communication is an important thing ...
This is my first MOOC experience and I'm a little lost...  But I'm very surprised how much knowledge, experiences, tools,... that are shared with others! Now, I try to organize the information, the tools...I'm exploring, discovering and learning how to build and organize my PLE... I hope to share my thoughts and experiences soon!
Thanks and be connected!

  1. Hi Gemma,
    Welcome to the etmooc. It is my first mooc too, and there is a lot of information to track of. But I find everyone is very helpful and supportive.

    I am very impressed with your English. I had no trouble understanding your email.

    I look forward to learning with you!

    1. Thanks for your comment, Lorraine! I look forward too

  2. Hi Gemma,

    Welcome. It's not my first MOOC. Let me assure you that confusion is normal and expected. There is so much of everything ~ information, conversations, posts, links, participants, apps. Don't worry about what you miss. It's like missing a bus... just wait a bit, another will be along.

    You are right ~ getting involved is the best way to learn about them. I'm retired, so following interests, which include adult education, online education, community outreach and advocacy

    1. Thanks for the encouragement, Vanessa! Little by little
