Thank you for visiting my blog. After attending Tech Forum Northeast 09 today, I have decided to create a professional blog. I use several web 2.0 tools in my own personal development but perhaps it is time to embrace them for my personal professional development as well. For this reason, I have started this blog to chronicle my own PLN.
I hope to compile interesting resources I find here for others to peruse. Additionally I will blog about my own professional opinions. I encourage polite comments. Feel free to agree or disagree. But please let's agree to be respectful. Hopefully this blog will serve as a record of my own professional growth.
Who am I to blog? I am an Instructional Technology Facilitator in a local school district in Westchester, NY. My nickname is Neene, hence the Blog title. I assist the teachers in creating an integrated approach to utilizing technology to address curriculum concerns. Constantly I am asked how to utilize a component of technology. Finally we are beginning to shift our focus to meeting curriculum standards and using technology to better address those concerns rather than just using technology for the sake of technology. It is my optimistic wish that I may present content that some may find enlightening, engaging, or encouraging using this blog format.
