OT and Social Networking

June 19, 2008 at 10:45 pm 6 comments

After completely failing to complete my 31-day Comment Challenge, I have learned that as much as one can try to get a certain project done, sometimes real life takes over and the project has to take a back seat.  Unfortunately I did not complete the challenge.

However, something that did get done over the past few weeks is very exciting to me.  I played a minor role in presentation that was given at the British Association of Occupational Therapists in discussing the role of Web 2.0  (social networking specifically) and the professional development of occupational therapists.  As a result, and with the guidance of Merrolee Penman, the two of us were able to make an 11th hour sumbission to the AOTA to possible present at their conference next year in Houston, Texas.  For more info on the presentation at the BAOT conference, see Merrolee and Sarah/Angela‘s blogs.

    I’m pleased that you didn’t finish the challenge!. I find when I read peoples blogs who are doing such challenges that their blogging becomes less interesting than usual. So my advice stick to what you do well and forget the challenges!
    i enjoy reading about your work and what you are doing.
