Thanks to my PLN: @mrsdkrebs @gallit_z @MsLHall @lindapemik via one tweet to Denise Krebs, who passed it on to Gallit, who passed the story on to Ms Hall, who passed in on to Linda, we now have a story, and hopefully five stories in five steps.
Please add to the tale in the next slide with your drawing You may copy my drawing and edit it, or create another new drawing.
When your tale has extended the story, invite another person to add to the next slide. Add your name to the title slide.
When we have 5 drawings, each of us will outline a different “adventure” in Mind42 from story slide 1 to story slide 5 (that’s three choices in the middle).I will invite you to collaborate — send me your email at grammasheri at gmail dot com
If possible, when we all have an adventure, each of us can “narrate” the story by rearranging the slides and screencasting our own story. I can do it for those without access to screencasting. Link to your story on the first slide.
For screencasting, the directions were:

7: Plan a “Choose Your Own Adventure Story” (Collaborate) Adaptation:
Draw an object Then ask a peer to draw a related object. Pass your peer’s drawing on to another peer and have them draw a related object. Keep doing this until you have 5 drawings (including your original object).
Create a story that links the original object with the last object drawn. What is the connection between the first object and the last object?
Write a brief story, then try to create multiple pathways that a user could go through the story. Use a mind-mapping tool
This presentation of Seven Degrees of Connectedness by Rodd Lucier @thecleversheep is the best introduction to connectedness, to taking a risk and starting to build a Personal/Professional Learning Network (or Neighborhood) I have seen. Real people. Real Stories. Be sure to watch it, and you will want to start your own journey.
And he refers to this infographic by Silvia Tolisano @langwitches (her blog) Look through these to see how you fit — it’s not linear, because we are all taking steps of connectedness in different directions — we’re travelling through neighborhoods, some of which we observe and other we jump in to participate. The important thing is to start. And once you start conversing, you will find friends — friends you may never meet in person, but whom you will care deeply, and friends and colleagues from whom you will learn and share.
