So it begins…

February 2, 2010

Hello out there…so begins my first steps into the world of blogging. I have decided it is time for me to start modeling the 21st century skills that we expect students to gain and one of those is communicating digitally. I am not sure how many, if any, will take an interest in what I have to say here but I will stick my neck out and say it anyway. A month ago I never could have pictured myself blogging. Then again a few months ago I had no idea what Google Apps were, had never touched an iPod touch, and certainly had never dreamed about Twittering (or Tweeting as I had to learn it was called.) But here I am. The number one thing I have learned about learning is you better be ready to change. Things never stay the same and the sooner you realize that and come to terms with it, the sooner you will be able to embrace change and all of the ups and downs that go with it.

In this blog I plan to write about my thoughts on education, technology, change, and occasionally the Iowa State Cyclones and how vastly superior they are to the junior college down the road in Iowa City. 🙂

I honestly have no idea where this will go from here. I have no idea if the things I have to say will make any sense to anyone. I have no idea if anyone will have an interest in reading them. There are however two things I am sure of. #1 – I am open to the experience and #2 – I am excited to see where I take it and where it takes me.

    I’m adding it to my Google Reader too! I have a lot of respect for you (and Annie of course!) and look forward to hearing your thoughts on education as Scott and I prepare to bring a new life into this world who will ultimately be a product of our country’s educational system. Thanks for being bold enough to post your thoughts for others to read!

    I can tell by your blog which doctor you will choose. I think this is an interesting way to think about education and should open some eyes.
