Gotta give geeks credit....this website making business is a lot more complex than I realized! At first I thought this Weebly thing would be easy, too easy perhaps. I just kept uploading more and more stuff but then before I knew it, the pages on my site were getting cluttered....FAST! I found it was becoming a chore to navigate around it as it was getting increasingly difficult to find anything specific. I want the visitors to feel like they are saving time by coming to my site for ideas instead of feeling like they are a mouse running through a maze with aspirations of finding a prize at the end. With that being the case, I'm starting to focus on making the site a bit more easy to navigate around. I hope it is working.
Oh! I almost forgot. I do have something educational to reflect on tonight. I was fortunate enough to take part in my most interactive evening on twitter. Up until now, I had the impression that Twitter wasn't as interactive as everyone said it was. It always seemed like it was an avenue where educators would log on, talk about how great they are, and just wait around for the approval of others. With rare opportunities to actually share and discuss with well respected, established, educators. At times, I would feel like I was guilty of being part of the problem of that "Show and Tell" Twitter experience. But this evening, I took part in the #SStlap discussion. I found out that it was a discussion branch focused towards Social Studies teachers and based on the book Teach Like a Pirate by Dave Burgess. I was intrigued and added it to my Summer reading list. I was impressed with the collaboration via twitter that was happening. In the 2 years I had been on Twitter, I had yet to witness anything quite like it. People sharing resources, ideas, philosophies with the feedback and encouragement going both ways. I am looking forward to being a part of other discussions like this one in the future.
Anyway! It is 2:55am here, and I know my grammar is horrendous at this hour, so I'm off to bed!
