I Plead Guilty

I was just reading Lisa Parisi’s blog post about Wordle, and decided to spend a few of my very few and precious minutes at home, playing around with it. I produced at word cloud from the URL of my blog, and, guess what. I’m guilty. I talk more about technology than anything else.

I come from a century that was defined by its machines. It began without airplanes, and the automobile was a true rarity. Personal computers and the Internet happened after I started my career as a teacher. Tech is cool. It’s a huge part of my world. It continues to astound me that I can project my ideas in writing out to a global audience and with half-way decent spelling — and that people actually read it.

But still, where it counts, it’s really about the information. Where are students meet their world, it’s about the information. They tech is only the lens.
