Summer has started for me. I can sleep later (haven’t yet, but the opportunity is there). I can read or write whenever I want to. My days are open to possibilities.
Today on the Two Writing Teachers blog, Betsy Hubbard reminds us to think about our One Little Word. My word is Reach. I would like to Reach for more teacher/bloggers to join DigiLit Sunday. I have no idea how to do that. So I am calling on my readers to help me.
I tend to be someone who rises to a challenge. Last summer I joined in CLMOOC and plan to again this summer. I will probably do Teachers Write with Kate Messner and many other awesome authors again for the 4th year.
There are new challenges every day in this community. Reaching out to create my own challenge is a bit scary. What if no one comes? I will stay true to my OLW and just do it. For the next four weeks, I’ll post a challenge on DigiLit Sunday. If you choose to do it, you can post it however you feel most comfortable, Twitter, Facebook, Blog, or GooglePlus. I’ll collect the links and post them the following week on DigiLit Sunday. Use #digilitchallenge. Be sure to tag me.

Challenge this week: Turn an image of nature into a work of art: #photoart
For my photo, I used Waterlogue app on my phone. Then uploaded it to PicMonkey to add the haiku.
Reaching new challenges. Playing with digital literacies. Pass it on.
