1. Continue regular weekly activities – blogging, developing your concept map, and follow the distributed conversation through various sites (pageflakes, delicious, Google Alerts). In your blog posts, consider the question: Have you begun to see the rudiments of a learning network forming? Has some of the conceptual uncertainty settled?
2. If you have not done so, set up an account with Google Reader and subscribe to a few of the blogs from fellow participants that you’ve found to be insightful or valuable in your learning.
