If I could sum up what I would like to do with the next stage of my professional life, basically if I had to pick my next job, I would probably reference this site. Not that I’m a particularly huge fan of podcasts, but I’m specifically referencing this site: advocating the correct usage of a cool new technology, securely grounded in good pedagogy (not in some IT budgeter’s idea that some how a 3rd grader can benefit from a Palm Pilot in their English class), and presented in a well designed web site, both visually and usably.
As much of a geek as I may be, one thing that bugs the hell out of me is technology for technology’s sake. No! Technology must fill a need… not create one. Otherwise, it’s just “stuff.”
Every educational institution should as lucky as UW to have something like this site. This is very similar to what I did at UConn, in my first “real” job. I do miss that job.
