As we have reached the end of 2010, and the first half of the latest school year, I am trying to get my ideas into some sort of order. At the suggestion of a few people (@shannoninottawa and @barbaram), I have decided to make a concerted effort to use put my thought on education, learning, and leadership to paper. Okay not really paper, but yuo get my point.
This is not the first time I have tried to blog. There was the deliberately satirical bog about my dog (http://beastor.blogspot.com/), an early school focused blog (http://gci4u.blogspot.com/), and an failed attempt at commenting on teaching (http://hale.edublogs.org/). The satirical blog and the school base blog were designed for specific puroposes which were achieved. Unfortunately, the edublog never really achieved what I wanted it to. the failure I suppose is because I did not put in the time to make it work. So here I go once again attempting to create the second web presence of myself that gives me a chance to comment on the job I do and how I do it (or could do it). I have successfully used web sites with students in the past, but a recent article I read on twitter suggests having a second site which is separate from the site used to provide info to students and parents.
