Things have been crazy busy since I retired last May from teaching at Mesa Community College! I sailed in the Virgin Islands for 3 weeks, then had several projects waiting for me when I returned. Life has been very good. But I have not had time to do any more research on technologies for the classroom.
I am working steadily from home (and the sailboat) now, and love having the time to do more research on technology in education. If you have a product or application you would like me to review, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do some research and write a blog post about my findings.
For many years I have had companies wanting to sponsor me and have me, in turn, place a link to their website on my blog. I resisted in the past since I had a full time teaching position and wanted to do the research for my own students. Now that I no longer have students, I have decided to accept sponsors to help fund my research on the best technology for teaching math. If you are a company, or know someone who would like to sponsor my blog, please reach out at email@example.com.
I had a very productive and busy day! I spent it moving my blog to a sub-folder of my domain (tech4mathed) and then moved my entire work website from the college’s server over to my tech4mathed folder (that was no small task – I have created a huge website full of materials over the past 10 years!).
Finally I created a page for my consulting background and a new home page. Whew! There are still updates needed to be made, but at least it is all moved over.
I finally have every professional “hat” I wear connected on the same website with links to everything I have accomplished and still hope to accomplish. I have wanted to do this for a while, but it seemed like just too big of a job! It did take all day, but it will be so much easier to manage everything now.
For those of you who follow me on twitter, I will be phasing out my @suegmc twitter account and will only be using my @tech4mathed and my @northstarbridge accounts to keep everything updated.
Please take a look at the website at www.tech4mathed.com and let me know if there are any dead links, I would really appreciate it! Any ideas for improvement would be welcomed too!
I was asked last week by Livescribe if I would be willing to write articles for their blog. I wrote my first post and it went up today.
