Introduction and purpose

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.

As a secondary school teacher, I am constantly striving to learn more about the best practices for teaching and applying them in the classroom. In the last 20 years, the internet has impacted enormously on educational practices. It has given both students and teachers new and exciting tools for learning, instant access to resources and the ability to share information and ideas in an efficient and productive way.

The use of technology in the classroom is constantly changing. It began with the use of writing implements (blackboards, writing tablets) and has progressed to the use of digital computers and the internet. The possibilities for the use of technology in education are endless and this really excites me.

The collection of posts you will find on this site are my reflections on various areas concerning technology and education. I would really like to hear your thoughts on these topics, so please feel free to comment on anything that interests you or connect with me on Twitter: @nickijohnston3

Enjoy!
