What is life going to be like with Graduation one week away?
Well, first, I applied to the Ed.S. in Educational Technology program at Boise State. I just haven’t had enough of the wonderful teachers and courses. There are some areas that I want to learn more about and I figured “why not get credit too?”
Second, I find it hard to be disciplined and blog now that my courses don’t require me to. I saw a great opportunity to join a Blogging Buddies groups created by the ISTE Ed-Tech Coaches PLN. I am the only Educational Technologist at my school and sometimes it is a very lonely position. I work with a wonderful group of teachers but sometimes I need a fellow Ed-Tech Coach to bounce ideas off of. I need the accountability to blog that will come from being part of a group who are blogging. I have planned all Spring Semester to begin blogging so that I can share and reflect so now I have to because my Blogging Buddies are watching.
What is Blogging Buddies? Blogging Buddies were inspired by Jennifer Hogan’s Compelled Blogger Tribe. Blogging Buddies are designed to be a chance for ed tech coaches (and those tasked with helping teachers integrate technology) to connect, network and learn from other coaches via blogging. Those who have signed up are committed to blog once a month and respond to the posts of others in the group. I am anxiously awaiting the email that will tell me who my blogging buddies are.
Stay tuned…..there is definitely more to come.
