I’m going to join DigiWriMo for the first time. Our first task is to write an unofficial CV. What is DigiWriMo? For me it’s a chance to join people I know (or don’t yet) virtually to do some writing together and have some fun.
There have been some creative Unofficial CVs. I’ve been stuck but finally made myself whip something up.
Unofficial CV #digiwrimo – Tania Sheko
Kindergarten, primary school, secondary school, Russian Saturday school, university, Life. During moments of brief lucidity; through hard times, mistakes, reluctant lessons.
Life: Life has been a constant teacher and the course is quite comprehensive and rewarding although, at times, relentless. No clear outcomes provided so flexibility required.
Motherhood – learning from my children; getting a second and third chance to grow through stages of development with some distance.
Partner: Rewarding course with fulfilling outcomes;
Teacher: Not very different from being a student, and not limited to the classroom.
Friend: More experience with single friends than groups; some experience with virtual friends (and much enthusiasm).
Teaching English, French, German, Russian and English as a Second Language in schools.
Teaching my 2 sons how to be thoughtful, respectful human beings;
teaching them how to stand up for themselves; that there are always other options; that they should go with their passion; that happiness is more valuable than success (and what is success anyway?)
Listening skills especially reading between the lines; noticing details; having big and slightly unorthodox ideas; creative alternatives; ability to create environments that make people feel comfortable and respected; ability to be alone and not get bored.
Understanding myself, other people and life; finding people to play with; finding stimulating ideas and tracing them back to people I can get to know; finding the wonder in small, everyday things; developing compassion.
My most rewarding achievement was attracting the attention of some very creative and generous people who played with me to remix a quasi play I’d written as part of Rhizo15 MOOC.
From the DigiWriMo website, some unofficial CVs:
- Kevin’s comic version
- Sarah’s audio one done on ThingLink and links to audio files on SoundCloud
- Maha’s mostly textual one done on Tackk and embedded into WordPress
- Here is an activity Maha found, designed by @cogdog that inspired other educators to use as icebreakers “Ingredients of Me“.
- Here’s an activity that Fred Mindlin found.
