Contributions to the Community and the Learning of Others

Building a sense of community with my peers is one of the main points of our Networked Professional Learning assignment. Throughout the semester, my classmates and I started that foundation using two different ways, and that is in the form of blogging and a discord community. We were required to do at one or two blog posts per week for this assignment, along with a blog per week for our Learning Project. Below are images…
