Being immersed in technology since 1988 and education since 2003 I will admit that I have not been an active participant within social media and the constant communication it offers. Due to limited experience I can be categorized as a blogging newbie. The adjacent image depicts my current comfort zone (noted at CZ in the center) and my personal goal in which I am striving to reach.
My goal is to share with you my weekly insights and reflections through a variety of communication tools including videos, audio files, pictures and text. This will offer me experience sharing my personal voice through an array of technology tools in which I will not only gain exposure in learning how to use but to strive to reach beyond familiarity of use to embed these skills in an effort to share with others in my professional environment.
I have experience extending beyond the education environment, having been a graphic designer/electronic media specialist and owning my own design business for a number of years prior to obtaining a teaching certificate. The last four years I have assumed the duties of Coordinator of Technology in a K-8 school district in northern Illinois.
This blog will become one of my artifacts of learning for an Assessments course within the E-learning for Educators Graduate certificate program through UW Stout.
