Day 1: Becoming a Community MemberMr. Miller is a middle school teacher and is wanting to blend his instructions, but he doesn't know where to begin. He has heard several of his colleagues talking about OLLIE community and the 28 Days of OLLIE that begins today, Feb. 1.
They explain that the OLLIE community is an online community where individuals who are interested in online or blended instruction can connect with each other. Members they have the opportunity to benefit from each other's ideas and experiences, as well as gain insight into the newest innovations in online learning. It is a great place to ask questions and bounce ideas off others who are expanding their instruction into the online world.
After hearing this, Mr. Miller decides to become an OLLIE community member. He isn't quite sure what he wants from the community or what to expect, but he's willing to give it a try. He:
Enrolls in the community here.
Introduces himself in the general forum found here.
Pins his location here and learns that there are 3 other teachers in his school who are members of the community.
Learns the lay of the OLLIE community by completing the OLLIE Scavenger Hunt here
Later that day he is pleased to see that several community members have replied to his introductory posts, including the community facilitator. He also notices that he has received a badge for completing the OLLIE scavenger hunt.
Be Like Mr. Miller!
