Instructional Blogging

The blog you are currently previewing is my portfolio blog.  It houses some of my work related to the field of education, instructional technology, and instructional design.  It is not a comprehensive list of the work I have done in education, but it does demonstrate a few of my better projects.

Additionally, I have a instructional technology or educational technology blog, entitled Hoosier Teacher.  I use this site to share information with local and global colleagues.  For instance, when I presented my SMART board training to my school board, I posted my presentation on my blog to share with colleagues and community members not present at the meeting.  Another example woud be a post I created as hyper-content for an online module.  This post was on developing effective and engaging presentations, which provided additional hyper-content for learners.

Another blog, entitled Hoosier Classroom, that I contribute to is for the classroom.  This blog is used to inform my students, parents, and administrators.  Here are just some of the posts I created to engage learners with multimedia related to the fourth grade curriculum:

My latest blog is entitled Tech Three.  With this blog another Technology Integrationist and I, share information about digital tools for learning.  Each week, we create a video overview of three tools teachers can integrate into the classroom.  Then, I share the blogposts and video with the teachers within our district weekly.  Ultimately, it is a way to share tools with teachers and practice what we preach by creating online learning content.

These blogs are my attempt at utilizing web-based technologies for instructional purposes.  Blogging is just one web-based learning tool that can be used enhance a learning environment.  Please click the links to review the various posts I created for these blogs.
