Mr. B Now Offers Video Podcasts and Live Workshops on NEW Website

Hello everyone,

Welcome to 2017!

One habit that I learned in my teaching tenure is to constantly revise and improve my lessons and materials. This is one habit that I have not been able to break. Keeping this in mind, here are some exciting changes coming to Mr. B's website and blog.

  1. Mr. B Website and Blog Redesign
  2. Mr. B Video Podcasts and Tutorials on YouTube
  3. Request Mr. B for Workshops, Tech Training Sessions, or Public Speaking
Check these out in further detail below and don't forget to visit again next month when these changes go Live.

Redesigned Web Page and Blog

The New Mr B Website

Launch Date: Available Now - Click here to Preview

If you haven't heard yet, check out my article on the NEW Google Sites.

I started my class web site in 2009 during my student teaching. Since that time, I have taken on many roles as an educator and a technology facilitator. As a result, my website has become a somewhat disorganized hodgepodge of materials from my classes and technology specialist role. I decided it was time for a change.

Using the features included in the new Google Sites, I have redesigned my website. My website will be updated to be more user friendly and geared toward education technology. The new website will also work better on phones and mobile devices.

Video Podcasts - YouTube Channel Launch

Launch Date: January 2017 -

About 6 months ago, I posted about launching my YouTube channel. Since that time, I have been pulling together resources, planning and researching topics in education technology, and setting up a podcast studio. A major set back to launching this channel was the death of my MacBook Pro, which had served faithfully for 5 years before powering off for good in October.

As always, thank you again for your continued support of Mr. B Ed Tech.

What Comes First, Education or Technology? This is a good article about putting education technology in perspective. "What has happened is that the existence of the technology has enabled you to reconsider some of your teaching methods." Technology has sparked a critical change in education. When integrating technology in education, for the most part of the 20th century, the focus was on adding technology to already existing teaching practices. “I want to get people to start from the notion that there are educational things that they want to do, or educational processes that they would like to engage with, and then - and only then - talk about the technology.”— The death of the digital native...
