I say that I "participated" in the webinar but I could have earned the badge for just sitting there like a lump on a log. I chose to dive in. It's hard for me to jump in but it is getting easier. Sometimes if I chime into a backchannel, I feel like everyone already knows it or someone else is about to share it so I should wait. Working on participation. Even back in grammar school I disliked participation grades. I just wanted the real earned grade. Connecting and collaborating is a skill I am working on. So far so good I think.
By the way, ChatWing was used in this webinar. I don't care for it too much because I could never stretch the window. I'm sure it's operator error. I felt like a couple times I was missing out on an interesting comment/resource/idea.
The second badge I earned this week is priceless. A student awarded it to me for teaching. #youmatter!
