I post a ton of content, and have an archive of thousands of posts. Finding articles on a specific topic can be a pain in the neck, so I’ve put together this page. If you want to see what I’ve posted about one of the topics below, just click the link. (Those of you who are more visual can always scroll through the Archive)
There are three types of tags I use:
Topic Tags: These tags are used for specific topics within a broad subject area. For example, in the Higher Level tag of Social Media, I would have Topic Tags for things like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, or Social Networking.
Subtopic Tags: These tags are used when there are additional topics within a topic tag. The best example I can give is for the Facebook Topic Tag. In this case, my posts on Facebook may be about new features, privacy issues, an educational project, or something else. Therefore, Subtopic Tags become necessary. I have noted where Subtopic Tags exist below.
Please bear in mind that I typically apply several tags per post, so there will be cross-pollination as you go through them. For example, an article on privacy on Facebook may have the following tags: Facebook, social media, tech, technology, privacy, current issues, consequences. You’ll see some repeats, is my point :o)
While I have generally tagged posts related to social media with a “social media” tag, posts related to specific technologies can be found below.
The Facebook tag is unique in that I’ve also attached the privacy tag to it, for posts related to issues of online privacy.
Posts that I feel illustrate the potential behind educational technology, social media, and technology in the field of education.
Posts that I feel illustrate the potential dangers and current issues of technology in our day-to-day lives.
Posts related to new technology tools you may be able to use as an educator.
This is about as vaguely defined as I get for tags. The general goal, however, is to use this tag for posts related to the practice of teaching. This may include things like other teachers sharing their classroom experiences.
Activity ideas, essentially. This is a tag I’m working to grow. Also includes Teaching Ideas.
