Our First Talking the Tech by Shirley and Laura

What did we just do?  We created a new identity called Talking the Tech Walk.  It was easy.  We had a little bit of knowledge and an abundant willingness to learn.  We collaborated, did a little research, and adapted what was available to us to serve our purpose to have a wider voice in the world.

We are two teachers, who have been talking tech with each other for some time now: We want to reach others who are either talking the tech walk in their own classes, or who may be inspired to walk the tech talk if they have a chance to read about how some others are doing so.  Ultimately, our story is about more than tech.  As we have implemented technology into our classes, we have also been thinking anew about learning and teaching.

We hope to hear from others who are on the walk or would like to start the walk so that we can all learn together.


  1. I'm so eager to keep up with your thinking and experience with technology in (and out!) of the classroom. How great to see two teachers in different disciplines, who teach students of slightly different ages collaborate in this way. Go Shirley/Laura!

  2. Welcome to the world of blogging! Looking forward to your next blogs!
