The first post I ever wrote on the first version of this blog was in January of 2006.
I’m pretty sure I’m the only person that read it.
There have been several hundred posts, a podcast, videos, and some incredibly poor decisions on my part on the direction of this site.
Over the years, the focus of this site has varied from consumer electronics to digital marketing to educational technology.
That last one is where I found my home and my current career. And where this blog will stay focused for the future.
However, I’m not interested in writing articles that are the typical edtech fair, chock full of lists of the newest shiny products that are bombarding classrooms around the world.
There are plenty of authors providing that perspective and I have done plenty of that writing myself.
My hope with this site will be to provide insight into my journey as a digital learning coach, focusing on helping other coaches work with teachers and students to integrate technology in meaningful ways in their classrooms.
I certainly don’t have all the answers and I fully expect that, as time progresses, I’ll have to change some of my thoughts based upon new learning and research.
I said this in my first post and I say it again now: thanks for reading this and thanks for joining me on this journey.
