I may not think about it often enough, but just as the ground beneath my feet is always on the move, so too is the world of Educational Technology. I named this blog to remind me that shift happens and I need to move or become fossilized in my comfortable ways. I’ve just recently finished up a very inspiring weekend at the annual CUE conference in Palm Springs and have decided to try some different ways to reach out to the thirty-one K-12 schools in San Diego Unified that I support. I also hope to help the teachers in my district become more connected with each other and the world. After all, this is what I’m asking them to have their students do in class. So, I’m slightly embarrassed to admit that I’m completely new to this whole idea of blogging, tweeting, and sharing my crazy perceptions. In fact, as I’m typing this my daughter is asking me, “Why are you doing this again?” To be honest, I’m still trying to figure it all out.
As suggested by CUE keynote speaker, Adam Bellow, (http://www.edutecher.net/) I’m not going to worry about making “mistrakes”, but rather will go out on a limb and just jump in. So, here it is world! The good, the bad, and the ugly! Hopefully, I will pick up some followers on my journey.
Shout out to Reuben Hoffman (@reubenhoffman, https://sites.google.com/site/reubenhoffman/) I’m working on that project. This is just the start.
