Welcome! It’s a rainy Friday morning in downtown Philly. Although the weather is dreary, the next few days for me will be anything but dreary because THIS IS EDUCON PHILLY WEEKEND! Before I explain Educon, I want to explain the “backwards and forwards” title of my post.
The backwards part refers to the fact that I need to get back to blogging again. If this is important to me, why haven’t I done so before now? Life gets busy, I make short posts to my Facebook or Twitter accounts, experiment with dozens of other social media interfaces, and read (or skim) hundreds of cool Internet resources. But I don’t post to this blog because I’m in a hurry to get to the next meeting, to reply to someone’s email, to work on this or that project, or I’m too tired to think straight from another busy day. And of course, the perfectionist part of me wants my blog (make that blogs, plural) to be well organized, perfectly planned, and strategic before I can feel I’m in the rhythm and routine. And we all know that life is not perfect.
So I am not going to worry about going backwards anymore. Instead, this is the first post on my ThinkICT blog as I move forward to THINK about how information and communication technologies are an integral part of today’s teaching and learning process.
Thank you for visiting! I hope you’ll return now and then to see how I am thinking about ICT.
