First Blog - Blog is Ready to Go

After much time spent fretting over the layout and design, my first blog is ready to go and long overdue.  My delay also came with wondering; “why would anyone care what I have to say?”  The past couple of years, I have learned so much from what others had to say through Twitter and blogs.  In return I have neglected the other half of professional learning; sharing something.  Thanks to a retweet by Darin King (@darinking) and response from Kelli Tannehill (@kt1207) in reference to a blog post by Dean Shareski (@shareski); “Professional Development is Not That Complicated.”  Also, thanks to blog posts by Richard Byrne (@rmbyrne) “11 Things You Should Know About Blogging” and George Couros (@gcouros) “What should a networked educational leader tweet about” for their information and inspiration to get started.

I made the transition from high school associate principal to district technology director about 1 year ago, so I will share all things technology and 21st century learning in future blog posts.  Attention to detail is always important to me, but I may encounter some bumps in the road as I start my new blog.  I know that the bumps will become learning experiences.  Isn’t that what education is all about?  I would expect both teachers and students to take risks and learn from their successes and failures.  With all that said, my first blog post is complete with more to come.
