Inside a Cyber Studio: Kimberly Wright

Due to the popular response I've decided to issue two columns a week instead of one. I will post one at the beginning (monday/tuesday) of the week and then one at the end (friday). Otherwise, it would just take to long to get through all of them.
Keep in mind the questions might change from time to time (especially as technology changes), and I'm looking to provide other formats as well (audio/video).

I hope you all find this to be a fun/exciting journey as we get to learn a bit more about each other and why we love technology & education.

  1. I love your blog. I am a teacher in South Africa currently doing M.Ed in Adolescent Literacies and so going on huge journey of exploration regarding integrating technology into teaching. Your blog is inspiring and exciting, as well as giving me lots of 'goodies' to follow up on. Where are you proposing to do a Masters in Tech. Integration? I like the sound of that?

  2. Adrienne, thanks for the nice comments, I'm glad it can be a useful resource for educators.

    Jennifer Dorman suggested I look for an online master's in Instructional Technology.
