Here's the ironic thing. I want everything post to be well thought out, well crafted, well designed, well...perfect, really, before I put it out into the world. But my tag name (or whatever it is called) is MESSY TECH, for Pete's sake! I chose that name for a reason. Ventures are messy, full of ups and downs, mistakes and victories. Ditto with technology integration.
Which leads me to this: Here I am, imperfect, unpolished, and undone (as in unfinished, not as in falling apart in this particular usage).
This is what I want to do. I want investigate and understand how tools (technology) + strategies (Visible Learning) + Bloom's Taxonomy = learning. I want to organize my thoughts and my findings. The only way to do that is to start. One of Steven Covey's 7 Habits for Highly Effective People is Begin with the End in Mind. Although this is a worthy goal, when it comes to creative endeavors, this habit comes up wanting.
I don't have the end in mind. But I do have mini scenic spots where I'd like to stop and ponder and think and reflect and be. It's like a road trip without the detailed itinerary. I know where I am heading, I'm just not sure exactly how I am going to get there. Wait. Yes I do. One step at a time.
