I’ve been struggling a little to write a 100th post for this blog. It’s been a little over a year of learning in this medium, and I have a lot of thoughts I could share about it, but today I saw a tweet that changed my mind about what I would write:
David Jaremy is the principal of Hornepayne Elementary and Secondary School (“HESS”) in the northernmost part of our northern Ontario board. Here’s a map – go ahead and zoom out until you understand where it is in the province:
David and I have been chatting on Twitter for quite a while, and I recently spent a day at his school, working with his staff on e-Learning, Blended Learning, and more.
And so I “casually encouraged” him to start blogging, mentioning that I’ve found it to be a really valuable exercise. I referred to a recent post (I think it was this one), which he told me he’d read and that he was now going to (re)start. We talked a little about platform, and I suggested WordPress.com.
So I patted myself on the back a little when I saw the tweet, and again when I saw another tweet a little later, on a topic that we have talked about before:
So I think it’s appropriate for my 100th post to happily congratulate David on his first. Kind of meta.
Also, I wanted to share his work and to encourage everyone to participate in the conversation he’s started there. I’ll be involved, and I’d love to see others join in.
Warning: he also likes to talk about hockey.
