I often thought that if you want to know about how a person thinks just look at their desktop. The desktop is indicative of something about a person, perhaps how they organize their thoughts, dreams, plans, leisure activities, and problems.
In the midst of the 3 courses I am taking, I feel as thought I am learning something about my online learning "style" as I work on the various assignments. I tend to "play" first and figure out later when I have a technological task. In recognizing this "style" of mine I realize that the play first technique can get me on quite a few tangents. That can be good and, well, not so good. When the element of time is a factor in completing a task the explore as you go route is an issue. So my job is to now find a happy balance of "focused work" and "happy play" as I continue to learn more about Instructional Technologies and Digital Media Literacy.
