A bold statement…
I decided that it is time to resurrect this blog, though I doubt anyone will notice–since they didn’t seem to notice when I abandoned it shortly after I received my master’s degree…
I need to keep up with it better than I have been. Learning shouldn’t stop with the completion of a degree–it should be a lifelong pursuit.
So in the name of revitalizing lifelong learning for me, I hereby pronounce this blog resurrected.
Maybe I’ll even find some readers this time around.
As of tonight at approximately 10:15pm, CST, I officially completed the final assignment of my last remaining class in my master’s degree program at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
The degree, once it is officially awarded to me sometime in January, I believe, is a Master of Education (Ed.M.) Degree in Educational Psychology with an Emphasis in Curriculum, Technology, & Education.
One blog that I stumbled upon on the Classroom 2.0 Ning group is David Ligon’s blog. I find it interesting and useful because he seems to cover a wide variety of topics related to instruction and Web 2.0. His posts are a good mix of specifics and more general topics–I think just about anyone at least somewhat interested in education and technology could find something of interest in his blog. He’s also good about providing links to helpful resources and tagging his posts. The other thing I like about his blog–I’m ashamed to admit–is that he doesn’t post too often that I can’t keep up… In fact, it’s almost a case of “less is more”–I’m usually awaiting his next post, wondering what the topic will be. *sheepish grin*
