Well, I guess I'll get this blog site up and running. Originally, I planned to create my portfolio using Blogger, but the area-ISD acts as the ISP for the 21 local districts and blogging tools are completely firewalled. I talked to the ISD tech coordinator last night and she said the ISD has a policy and a plan for blogging, and it is about two years away. So in the meantime, since I think it would be pretty awkward to show up for an interview and have my portfolio work firewalled, I'll look for some non-web based solutions that I can use along with the standard paper portfolio that my school's education department says I must have. I'll use Blogger to work on the technical skills I'll need so I can introduce technology into the classroom when I start teaching.
