This is my opportunity to publicly thank and acknowledge those folks who have figured prominently in my being able to bring this work to a public forum, and to whom I am grateful for the learning context that allowed me to personalize my own learning.
My husband and daughter have sacrificed my attention over the last nineteen months and I am very grateful for their support.
My graduate advisor, Dr. Richard A. Schwier at the University of Saskatchewan has been my mentor and cheerleader (I use that term in the most respectful way), pushing me to a level of critical thinking and knowledge that I would not have found on my own.
Dr. Alec Couros of the University of Regina guided me to the online world of educational technology professionals where reflective learning happens and gave me purpose in refreshing my hands-on technical skills.
And to those many dedicated teachers and learners in my personal learning network, I only hope I have supported your meaning-making in some small way after you have contributed so much to mine.
