While I have set up several blogs in the past, I have always kept them set to private - invitation only. They were blogs about my experiences in college and as a first year teacher and they failed to "take off running" because of the lack of interaction and participation from selected viewers. I have never been one to keep a journal and therefore having an online space that was simple used to record my thoughts without any feedback or interaction from those reading it quickly became an online space filled with cob-webs and dust from the dwindling updates to its content.
Having spent time discussing and learning more about blogs and their place in the classroom, I am determined to take this opportunity to start something new. I have found myself to be a resource for a variety of teachers and students I have interacted with in regards to technology and would like to take this opportunity to share some of the tips, tricks, and other tidbits of technology information with those peers that would like to investigate them for themselves. I will also be using this space to post several discussions for one of the graduate classes I am taking to pursue my Masters of Education in Instructional Technology.
