When I started my career in education as a classroom teacher in New York City, writing an “About Me” page for a website would not have been on my to-do list. My teaching career began in a classroom with chalk, textbooks, and looked pretty much the same as when I was a fifth grader. But within a few years, we traded overhead projectors for iPads… and that’s a big part of the reason there is a website here for you to find today.
I credit the start of my journey with a phone call… from an organization who wanted a teacher (me) to tell just a couple more teachers about ways to use technology with students.
Well, I showed up to an event that wasn’t “just a few teachers,” but a few hundred educators looking for help as they navigated the fast-changing world of education technology. So I jumped on stage in front of a packed house and starting sharing the ways my students and I used technology in our classroom.
When the teachers who showed up that night started asking for the name of my blog, my Twitter handle, a link to my presentation… I didn’t have an answer.
I hadn’t thought that my knowledge or experience was worth sharing, that it could help someone else, or that just maybe… my tips, strategies, and EdTech favorites would be useful to a larger audience.
That was 2012, fast forward to today… I’ve had the chance to work with educators on three continents, speak at events like ISTE, SXSWedu, and EdTechXEurope, and reach thousands of readers through my books, my website ClassTechTips.com, my podcast, and my social media accounts. It’s been an exciting ride for sure, and I’m so lucky to spend most of my time with teachers and kids in classrooms, connecting with educators at conferences, and writing about EdTech
