Alright, so here it is, week 6 of NRC01PL. Even though I am technically in the same week as everyone I guess I am still marching to the beat of my own drummer. I wanted to join the live session on Tuesday, but other things intervened. Oh well.The topic of this week is the personal learning assistant. Hence my little callout to the four major virtual assistants (Siri for Apple,
Of text messages and telegrams
These couple of weeks that have passed I have been on vacation. While on vacation I was able to meet with a colleague that has taught for my applied linguistics department.
