This week's blog assignment seemed a little overwhelming. I'm not sure if it was because of the time off from the holidays that I got out of "school mode" or what. So, after a read it a few times, I set off to find some new professional pen pals from around the world. I sent emails to a few of the people listed in the resources and got some invalid email address returns. I lucked out though when a professor from Sweden answered my requests and said she would be happy to converse with me about early childhood issues. I'm so excited, I think this exchange is really going to add to my understanding of global childhood issues. I am still hoping to hear back from some of the others I sent request too. I may need to pick a few more names tomorrow just in case.
The second part of the assignment was to read and review early childhood organization websites. I looked at quite a few and subscribed to a couple of news letters, I am kinda of an information junkie and already subscribe to many professional ECE blogs and discussion forms. I chose to focus on the Zero to Three Website, as this is the age of child that I primarily work with. I love their site because it has great interactive presentations on brain development.
I hope everyone had a great break and that your all moving seamlessly back into "School Mode". Hopefully after this weekend, I too will be back on task~ ;)
