Where I use Gabbly.com:

I use "Gabbly Chat" often at my work place when reading about a specific topic , the benifits I recieve using it are countless
what "Gabbly" does is that it gathers all the current visitors of the same Web page, and that allows me to open a discussion, ask questions about what I am reading from employees around the glob and in matter of minutes I can read their feedbacks and learn from their differnt perspectives. This tool helps me and others share our knowlege and past experiances and work together to find solutions to certain situations.
How you, me, we can use Gabbly.com:
I will be embedding gabbly chat on my website: http://www.pepperdine.edu/dbenjami/
My LC1 and the Cadre 11 are welcom to visit my site to chat at any time about any topic that is posted on my website,
To open discussions about my website - an article that is posted, open to share your thoughts on it.

Reflection:

Now my intention of giving anyone a gift is that I wanted my LC1 and cadre 11 to use it and benefit from it, it's tough now a days since people have so many stuff, and so much technology out there ( Skype, TI, IM..etc), so I wanted to personalize my gift through introducing you to a technology tool called Gabble.com, I wanted to teach you how to use it and embed it on to my website. I wanted to offer my help to you through having you visit my website and chat about any thing you see interesting on it. I hope to help you excel on what you are doing already.
My thought process was to share with you a gift that will help you with your OMET journey, my reactions were as follow I felt good about myself to offer my help, I realized the level of responsibility that I have on my shoulders to teach my group and be ready for any questions from other cadre members, so I made sure that I am as detailed and specific as I can be in my writing to not mislead anyone and help them achieve a certain level of understanding, I added likes, posted pictures to be as discreptive as I could.

This experience of sharing a gift reminded me how giving back to the community can be rewarding, we often get caught up in our own world and lose site of people around us. I often complain about certain things I receive from others, not realizing how difficult it's been for them to try and offer their help. I now appreciate and count my blessings for any help I get. We are all responsible for each other, every one is a student and a teacher neither role is easy.
The nature of every gift is giving, sharing and like they say is the thought that counts, I guess I just learned the true meaning of that thought this assignment.

I think the purpose of this assignment was to have us apply this learning experiance to our Action Research Project. Understand why are you doing your project, take a leadership role in helping others, share your experiance and knowledge with others, think about your action and consider other people's reactions to that, think about who will benifit, and why do we want to help. Why should we be resposible in our communities?
