Okay, I am going to admit first of all that I cheated a little with this task. I have a blog. You are reading it. I started using TypePad and then in 2014/2015 I moved to Blogger. I shared some posts, a few videos. And then I stopped.
It’s not that I don’t have things to share. I do have a great deal of experience teaching with technology, and that has become more apparent as I have moved from a private school to supply teaching in Peel. It’s just that I feel that it takes a while to craft what I want to say. Knowing that what I write is permanent and has the potential to be read by others means that I have to think about what I am saying.
That being said, George Couros has a great blog. I first heard about him when I started to write my blog. I have read his book; which is fantastic. I have heard him speak; very inspirational. But he has a huge audience. He sells books. He runs workshops.
I teach. I don’t have a huge audience. I reflect on my teaching without blogging. Maybe it’s my English upbringing. I can quietly get on with my work without sharing it. I don’t even like compliments!
That being said, I am willing to start this again. I know that being reflective in my teaching can help me grow and discover more areas to grow, to expand, and to develop my skills further.
