I have joined the digital world as an educator and will now blog about educational technology and how it can be applied to the teaching of writing in university.
I have been inspired by #etmooc’s (Education Technology MOOC) collaborative sessions on Blackboard, Google+ and Twitter. I have been introduced to many new tools, not all of which are applicable to my work, but I have discovered new ways of thinking about open source platforms and edtech trends in higher ed, and I want to use this blog to share resources, share my ideas and collaborate.
Here is a good slideshare about being a 21st century educator: http://www.slideshare.net/zaid/dna-of-a-21st-century-educator-simplified
