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

Hello everyone,

Welcome to 2017!

  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.

What will technology look like in 2017?

Welcome to 2017! What will 2017 bring, in terms technology? There are many predictions being made about what will happen this year. Here are some of the common predictions for technology of 2017. Virtual Reality will not be as popular as Augmented Reality Trump will have an impact, but what does this mean? 2-in-1 Computers will be on the rise Hackers and Cyber attacks will improve More Smart Devices will be sold (Smart Homes, Cars, Watches, and other devices)  Augmented Reality The common theme of what 2017 will offer, seems to be more of what 2016 offered. Augmented reality was shifted to the forefront of American culture last year as Pokemon Go rose and fell in a short time span. Virtual reality did not get off to the start expected of the "next big thing," in terms of product sales. This has caused some to take pause and re-evaluate virtual reality's future. However, many sources agree that virtual reality is not going away quite yet, if at all.
