A blog, oh for Christ's sake why? Technology blog, learning blog, education blog..in 2010 half a billion posts were read on this Blogger platform by over 400 million readers.
Why add to this cacophony on the net? What the hell can I possibly add? Why not just shut up?
Well, I must admit that for a number of years I would have agreed with you.I have kept at least five secret blogs which have untroubled your world and boosted Blogger's statistics over the past four or five years. They have been very useful personal journals, resource banks, classroom experiments and exposed me to no risk of ridicule! Now, I am in my 50th year and frankly I no longer care enough about criticism (my own or that of others) not to want to leave a few touches of my own in this space.
Why am I going to speak through this blog about technology and learning?
In my work as a language teacher, I have been using the internet in my work since 1996, have worked in e-learning since 2000, with social networks since 2007 and am continuing to use social networks and mobile learning solutions in my work today. I am convinced that technology is changing the way that we are learning and that it is essential to imagine a new education system in the light of this.
I have amassed a wealth of experience about life, learning, learning technology and the need to never stop learning. My interest is to play my part for the community and to learn from the community. This blog, is a web media-enabled dialogue from which I hope to learn.
