An Introduction

So, I’ve been thinking about how to introduce myself. I am taking a massive, open, online course ETMOOC. There are now about 1,500 people signed up. One of the first things to do for the course is to introduce yourself and add your blog to the hub so that others can find you and read along with your thoughts about the course.

I figured that saying that I’m now the Director of Educational Technology after being a teacher for a long time gives a pretty good idea of what I do at work. Plus, there’s this blog that gives some idea. What I always like is when I learn something about what my colleagues do outside of school. All of a sudden they are 3-dimensional people.

I made a little video about a fun adventure my family and I had over the vacation. We went to see the exhibit The Event of a Thread by Ann Hamilton at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City. It’s not still there or I would be encouraging anyone who is near by or has free time to go. So, here’s my little video about our day. Click on the image to see my video on vimeo.

    G’day Wendy,
    What an intriguing place to go to. I notice you mention it is no longer there. Any reason why? I would think anyone would enjoy visiting a place like that.

    Thanks for your comment. It was very interesting. The exhibit is not longer on display. The space is used for various installations. I also saw this exhibit there. (http://www.armoryonpark.org/downloads/press/InfVar_FT_SimonSchama.pdf)
    For some reason they have no information on their website about what else will be there in 2013.
