Back to Blogging

I have not blogged regularly for two years -- the two years where I served as Interim Principal for my school in addition to my regular role as Director of Technology Integration. I have missed blogging as a regular discipline, but a few colleagues have asked why I intend to blog once again, pointing out that many things have changed in the past two years. For instance:

  • Twitter has emerged as an important professional development tool
  • Facebook, and now Google+, have opened opportunities for professional conversations elsewhere in cyberspace.
  • Targeted social networks, such as Technology in Lutheran Schools, now support collaboration and conversation
So why I am once more blogging when there are so many other digital mechanisms for sharing? It is to  once again to re-create a discipline for myself to continue to learn, grow, and share with friends and colleagues in a more thought-filled manner. 

What can you expect from me? Posts will generally fit one or more of the following categories:
  • Christian faith and education
  • Review of current education research
  • Best practices in education
  • Personal experiences as an educator
  • E-learning issues
  • Links to resources
  • Training and mentoring colleagues
I pray that as I re-develop the discipline of blogging that I will be able to add value to each of you readers as well. May God bless us as we begin this journey together.


  1. It's good to see you back, Dave!

  2. Thanks Wendy. This has been long overdue.
