Where to begin? October 3, 2009Posted by IaninSheffield in Uncategorized.
Well it had to happen sometime and to be fair, it’s been long overdue. I guess I’ve dabbled for some while – keeping journals about bike touring, blogging as part of the evidence base on the Masters course I’m currently studying on, microblogging through Twitter. So I guess I’ve nibbled around the edges. But that still doesn’t explain the big leap. I’ve now reached the point where I’ve read enough educational blogs by other worthy folks that it’s helped me focus my mind on what’s important for me. I’ve distilled that down to three things:
- As a means of reflection – to get down my thoughts about what I’ve done, what I’ve read and what I’ve seen others do. To be able to revisit and review these ruminations at a later date ought to prove illuminating – hindsight as they say . . .
- To provide the opportunity for others to read and hopefully comment on my ideas, thereby providing further stimulus and the opportunity to clarify my thinking.
- To provide a place to review tools, resources and techniques and benefit from the previous points.
I’m also clear that I have no desire to dilute my musings here with any of the frippery I might ‘pen’ in other places – it’s edtech and learning or nothing.
