Hello my name is Tara Smith and this is my first blog entry in a very long time, and first for my Masters class in ECI 831. I hope to use this blog to help me through the journey of learning new technology and learning how to incorporate it into the classroom. I love using technology it helps make my every day life more manageable and the best part is that I find it easy to use. My favorite use of technology is social media. I love being connected to the world around me and to friends/family. I am old enough to remember a world without a cell phone/computer, and at times I miss the simple ways of communication; I can’t remember the last time I picked up the phone to call someone and have a conversation with. Knowing that technology and social media will not go away I am going to embrace it and enjoy the many tools that are out there!
