I blog here about learning, technology, traveling, photography and anything else that catches my interest. This blog started out as my reflection journal for a graduate class titled, "Instructional Technology for Diverse Cultures", and it was my first attempt at blogging. I am still working on finding my blogging voice.
I am an instructional technology specialist for a community college in Illinois. I help teachers design and develop their online classes as well as design and deliver technology training. In my former life, I was a high school teacher who thought (and still thinks) that ALL students can learn physics and math.
As an educational technology graduate student, I am interested in finding a successful model for professional development for teachers. I believe that a successful professional development program must include the creation of a community of learners through connecting online with social networking tools. I love teaching, learning, physics, math, technology, photography, my piano and traveling. And, I believe that a good education system can help solve many of the world's problems.
I welcome your feedback. Thank you for reading!
