I’ve taken ten days off from blogging to enjoy friends, my senior parents, my daughter, her husband, and their little dog. To the left of this post, and down a bit, you can see a cute picture of him sitting at their Mac as if he is preparing to search the web or maybe write a blog post.
The holidays included lots of time for relaxing, some early winter yard cleaning, and plenty of New Year’s organizing around the house.
Stay tuned. In 2012 I’ll have plenty to share on MediaTechParenting — books I am reading, research I’ve discovered, cool gadgets I’ve received, and articles on technology.
We can be sure that 2012 will bring increased innovation, more technological gadgets, expanded social media, and lots of opportunities to experiment and collaborate with digital resources. Our children and students, we can be certain, will competently and confidently embrace just about everything that comes down the pike.
We adults will need to embrace change, learn as much as we can, model appropriate behavior for the children in our families and classes, and remind ourselves of the importance of lifelong collaborative learning.
