What I really loved about this blog challenge and has kept me going is that it is making me think out of the box and push myself to do things I hesitated to do on my own.
As a person and as an educator, I have a lot of fears, especially when I am challenged to do new things.
It is pretty normal for me to avoid things when I don't know how to do them.
I am always depending on people to help me when I don't know how to go on and this is really a comfort zone I must step out of!!
My first attempt to conquer my fear is to create a pecha - kucha - kind presentation of myself and my work for Goal number 5 (Step out of your comfort zone) - which proved to me that I can actually use "power point", even in a simple presentation (I am still a beginner).
Thanks to Shelly I tried new tools like pearl trees, glogster, animoto and many more.
And I got to talk to so many wonderful educators with the same fears and problems and I believe that if you connect to people you can see that you are not the only one who's afraid!
What I am trying to do at the moment is organize and co-ordinate a video project with participants from all over the world and actually present it on my own in a convention. This will be the first presentation on my own (I don't know if I can actually do it) and I have to admit that I am afraid that everything will go wrong.
But what I have learned so far is that if you don't dare to do things, you never achieve anything!
