Welcome to my personal blog posts. This section of the Teaching Tech-Savvy Kids
site has been designed as a space for me to share with you my vision for our social network and to offer my insights on issues from the book. Seeing that the book took over two years to write and publish, these blog posts will allow me to update the book in a fast and collaborative manner.
First, my vision for this site is for educators to have a space to discuss the issues the book raised. We are living in a profound moment and, as educators, we must arm ourselves with the latest research and dive into conversations regarding digital media and learning. Our voices need to be part of the effort to craft policy, curriculum, and standards before they are beyond our reach and created and implemented without our input. This site can be our online home to connect, share, discuss, and revise education in a digital age.
Second, since the book took a long time to publish, I want to use my blog as a way to quickly reach educators, have an online presence, and to also maintain connections. Although this site is a social network, I see my blog a way to connect my ideas to those discussed in the forum and also keep educators updated on all things related to tech-savvy kids. I also intend to invite contributors from the book and members of our community to be guest bloggers to update educators on their most recent discoveries and insights.
Glad you are here! Let's engage...
