When I first started this blog almost two years ago, I really didn’t know what I was doing. I figured I would post a couple entries and never go back to it. While I haven’t been the most active blogger, I am up to 160 posts. I’ve hit topics about my students, classroom management, technology projects, union issues, and random stories about my kids. While I haven’t publized this blog (it is not linked from my homepage), I have posted my name and a simple search turns it up. I never wanted to be too specific about students or co-workers. No doubt some of my students have found it, but only one ever made a passing reference to it – so far. I understand the desire for some not to reveal their name (and have at times wished I could be more blunt), but that just wasn’t for me.
With the evolution of this blog I have decided that I need some sort of name change. I am still a history teacher, but I am also an educational technologist. Now that my district’s labor issues have been resolved, I see myself writing more and more about technology integration into the classroom. All the other topics are still far game, but this is the direction I have been going.
So far I have come up with:
- a technology-using history teacher
- a history teacher and an educational technologist
OK, so the my choices aren’t great. Any suggestions?
I’m also hoping to do switch over to wordpress once I figure this name thing out.
