My life as an Edublogger

It’s been about 3 weeks now since I decided that I needed to enter the 21st Century technology savvy world of a teacher. I had been living fairly vicariously through my daughter who teaches at The Canadian International School of Hong Kong. I have been teaching for over 20 years, have never felt afraid of technology, but using TIME as my excuse have always been a few leaps (a small river bed, not a canyon) behind truly savvy tech people.

This year I am taking a break from the main stream classroom, not because I felt I needed one but because I needed time with my granddaughter. This has freed up some time for sitting in front of the computer. I started with this blog, have a delicious account, follow too many blogs with rss, twitter, can do a presentation in Prezi, understand how I could someday use wiki, Google document, ether pad and have played with changing photo images in a huge array of free on line programs.

I’d like to say thank you to all those technology teachers and a few english teachers who have been my unknowing mentors along the way. My question is: WHERE ARE THE SCIENCE TEACHERS?? I am following two of you and when I have something to contribute, probably next year, I will start joining in the conversation. Until then I’d really like to know where the rest of you are.

    Where are the science teachers?

    Good question.
    ;)

    I do look forward to reading more of your experiences. It sounds like you have had a very productive year “off.” That’s certainly an impressive list of new skills there.

    As far as where the science teachers are… I don’t know. However, one I know of for certain, is my wife: http://nashosphere.edublogs.org

    Where has she been? Oh… I can tell you. She is a department chair (at my school) after only four years as a teacher… she has an almost-three-year-old and an eleven-month-old (today) and is a cross country coach. In fact, she is currently away at the state meet. None of this, of course, even mentions the preparation for labs, etc.

    I think we’re terribly busy. I’m not normal. I teach one period of Dual-credit Biology during the normal school day. I also teach an evening marine biology class that meets one night per week. The rest of the time I am in a staff development function. Part of this (as a result of a current tech-integration mission I have been allowed to take off on) can include digital communications.

    I often wonder how much I would be able to blog if I had 160 students as opposed to 38. Shoot- I’m hard enough on myself for being a 2-4 posts per month blogger right about now.

    *sigh*

    Keep up the learning!

    The Science Teachers Association of Ontario is having their annual conference in Toronto Nov 12-14, expecting between 1500 and 2000 preservice, working, on leave and all the way through retired science teachers there!

    hi Bonnie

    Thought I just saw you a few minutes ago on Queen Quay West in Toronto across from HarbourFront Centre. But I suppose you can’t be in two places at once. ;)

    If you are willing to buy a car, you will have to receive the business loans. Furthermore, my father usually takes a auto loan, which is the most useful.
