I figured I should dedicate my first post to explaining why I decided to start a blog. As a Computer Science professor, and a PhD student, I realized that I needed to practice my communication skills and get involved. Although I would prefer to be strictly on the reading side of technology, in order to really be a part of it I need to contribute. Hopefully this blog will the the perfect starting place.

Although I don’t really consider myself a leading expert in technology or in teaching, I plan on sharing my thoughts and ideas on teaching technology – thus my blog title Tecno-pedagogia. I will also include my ideas on my PhD research in online collaboration and teaching, which gladly fits under the same topic. Of course, I reserve the right to to post about any other topic that may be on my mind.

I encourage comments and ideas so please feel free to share. All I ask is that you be respectful.
