Edupunk as Portal

I continue to be a bit uncomfortable about the term EduPunk — for reasons similar to those posted by Doug Belshaw in Are you ‘Edupun’? I’m not.  How ever the idea of DIY teaching practices, tool arrangements, and scenarios intrigues me, as it explains pretty siccinctly a lot of what I talk about today and a lot of my own teaching style, ever since I started learning BASIC (and probably when I started dressing up as Socrates and Martin Luther, to be interviewed by my students).

If, when you scanned down to this blog title in your aggregator, you thought of web portals, then you probably scratched your head and thought, where’s Warlick going with this.  What’s got me excited this morning (anticipating another day of moving furniture) is all of the new educator bloggers I have learned about and then branching ideas I’ve been exposed to as I have tried to track through the conversations about Edupunk.  It’s become a portal to new stuff that I’m still trying to unbundle and figure out how to embed into my own conversations.

The problem with this?  My aggregator just got bigger, and rivets are popping out in all directions.
