Inside a Cyber Studio: Tim Holt

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.

Tim Holt

  1. Where do you live? El Paso, Texas

  3. What OS/platform do you use for your work? Both Windows & Mac
  4. What is your favorite Web 2.0/21st Century tool and why? My blog site, because it has transformed the way I learn and work. All of the stuff I do now is an offshoot of what I learned by starting a blog.
  5. What is the biggest misconception about technology? That it is something that is separate from the normal learning process. Technology is not a place, it is a tool
  6. What are the biggest hurdles you face as a technology educator? Getting people to understand that it is not hard to integrate technology into lessons.
  7. What has been your biggest success in technology integration? Actually, too many to mention, because the small ones were "big" for the people who did them, and the "big" ones were successful for the people that did them.
  8. What has been your biggest setback in technology integration? Lack of understanding by upper administration
  9. Who/what has been your biggest inspiration in technology/education? My yodas are many, but the biggest is Kevin Honeycutt, followed by Marco Torres. There are Many many more however....
  10. Where do you see technology integration heading in the future? Actually, I see a big disconnect beginning to happen between those that have access and those that don't.
