10 Reasons Why I Blog 1. I blog as a way to making meaning.
Editor's note: This is a cross post from College Online where "The Innovative Educator" is named in the top ten ed tech blogs list. I'm thrilled to be mentioned with all these other wonderful bloggers. I know and follow most of them and look forward to getting to know better those I don't. Education, as with all aspects of culture, is greatly impacted by the forward progress of technology. Several blogs are maintained by well-known individuals in the field of education. These top 10 technology blogs address technological developments as these innovations relate to education.

The first PHSprincipalBlog (changed to Director 4/1/2009) post was on 9/18/2007 .

As I contemplate these little facts, I am really surprised that I have been at it so long.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I intend to use my iPad to do as much of my work as possible and that includes setting up and producing this blog.
