This is my first blog post from my phone. I’m waiting for my plane to NYC and thought this would be a good experiment. It’s slow,but could absolutely see the benefits. For me, my phone will not replace my computer, but I LOVE having the Internet in my pocket.
I just finifhed reading Teacher Man by Frank McCourt. There’s a lot in his book that holds true for me as I work with teachers. I had a conversation with a teacher recently after a class that I held. Really what I do now is help teachers with instruction, my tool just happens to be technology. Sure, I still do a lot of “click here” instruction, but I’m still trying to influence instruction and help kids learn and succeed.
It’s an interesting position to be in and a little bit of my struggle with my new role.
Anyway, if off to NCTE. Got a flight to catch.
