Blog Post # 12

This just might be my favorite blog post yet. Instead of the usual, this time we are getting the chance to come up with a blog post that Dr. Strange could have used instead of some that he did. It's always nice to have a break in the every week cycle. It gives us a chance to show our creativity while giving us a break from what I'll call the reality of EDM310.

So.....If I was to assign a blog post what would I choose?

Well, I think it would be cool to pick out one picture from the internet that best describes yourself and your view on teaching and technology and tell why that picture is a good representation of yourself. You could even make things slightly more difficult and have students pick 3 pictures, one desribing themselves at the beginning of this class, on that would describe them now, and one that represents what their hopes are for the future.

I know that blog post are supposed to be an educational tool that we are using to get insight from several different people. However, if we do not truely know ourselves, then how can we grow as a teacher?

With that I leave you this quote...

Quality begins on the inside... and then works its way out. ~Bob Moawad

This would be my picture....

The World Is At My Fingertips

I chose this picture because I feel like the world really is at my fingertips when using modern forms of technology!


  1. I really like your idea. Check out Bailey Hammond's Blog Post #12. She has you watch Steve Jobs' commencement speech at Stanford in 2005. His concluding admonition: "Stay hungry. Stay Foolish." Your idea was recommended in advance. Bailey's final comment was "I hope you dance." As a metaphor it is excellent advice!

  2. Abby,

    I loved your idea it was very creative. If this would of been a projcet that we where assigned to do this semester I believe I personaly would have really enjoyed it. I also agree with you that it was nice to get a break from our normal blog assignments. You are doing a great job with you blog, keep it up we are almost done!
