Here is another poem as a reward for donations to my GoFundMe campaign to get to Canada for #unplugd12. This one is for Brian Metcalfe and Ghislaine Barbe (from AIS NSW). Brian suggested the topic of teachers sharing online, so here is the result –
I Share Online
I share my work online because when I do
I hope I’ve added something that’s useful to you
I share my ideas online because then I know
That you adding yours will then help mine grow
I share my pictures online because then you can see
A little bit more about what makes me me
I look for your work online because I know that it could
Help me shape mine like no other would
I look for your ideas online because I want to think
About new perspectives, opinions and make my own links
I look for your pictures online because it does make me smile
To see a different side of you every once in a while.
To make the Internet such a rich space to trawl through
I share online what I can and I’m rapt you do too.
