Random babblings and divergent meanderings

15 04 2009

This is not my first blog and it probably won’t be my last.  Despite having taught with and about blogs, wikis and other Web 2.0-ish tools, I can’t find my way to post regularly on a blog. Maybe it has to do with insecurity about what I write, fear of logorrhea, not quite enough vanity, or the fear that no one will ever read it, but for whatever reason it’s been a no go to this point.

Now thought the time seems ripe to try again.  With the Academic Commons blooming, the tools readily at my disposal, and a developed background of experience teaching with and about interactive technology in educational (ITP, short for Interactive Technology and Pedagogy from here on out) settings it seemed like I should try to share my experiences and see if anyone cares.  So, this blog will be going here and there in pursuit of some kind of . . . well something to be determined.  What I intend to do is muse on how the way I plan my classes is influenced by technology and how the implementation of that technology fails or succeeds on a general basis and with specific examples.  Since I have three classes going full bore right now that are all using blogs/wikis/etc. there should be some good stuff.

I hope that you join me in my (mis)adventures and that you can provide me with feedback about what makes sense, what doesn’t, what you would borrow, and what you wouldn’t do and why.  See you in the ether.
