I think it’s appropriate that the first post on my new blog be about communication. As a school tech director, as a M.Ed. student, and as a parent, I spend a lot of time researching and reading about the uses of technology in education. Although I learn a lot from what I read, I need to do a better job of reflecting on and sharing what I learn.
In some ways, I communicate all day long. I talk to people and answer technology questions every day. I respond in a (mostly) timely fashion to emails. I use Twitter to share resources I find with the world (and also as a way of saving them for my future self). I use Facebook and Instagram to share with friends and family. I even make an effort to use Google+ and not many people can say that!
Still, I would like to do a better job communicating what I learn and I’m hoping this blog will allow me to do that. If you’re interested in technology in education, or in technology and parenting, I hope you’ll stick around.
