What, where, who, why - making connections that count
This is the first connection - there are a lot of ways to connect. As a digital teacher and learner, you need to find a few ways that fit your needs. Don't try to do them all, or all the time. Take it one at a time and build your connections slowly and consciously.

- Thinking about Systems (Linda Booth Sweeney) - 12 Habits of Mind: sees the whole, looks for connections, pays attention to boundaries, changes perspective, looks for stocks, challenges mental models, anticipates unintended consequences, looks for change over time, sees self as part of the system, embraces ambiguity, finds leverage, watches for win/lose attitudes.
