Welcome! I really hope this site can become a place where I can put things that I find interesting, some of my course work, or the projects that I’ll be working. Most things will be likely be educational related in one sense or another, while others will be purely technical related. The word technical or technology has so many different meanings for so many different people that is becomes very difficult to define. It is like the word technology in Educational Technology. To some people they have the idea that we teach about technology or something of the sorts, other think we teach with fun and new gadgets, while others just give us blank stare. Just this week I was reading about the meaning of technology in a paper by my prof, Dr. Ross Perkins (n.d.). He states that technology is “the application of [mechanical arts and applied sciences] for practical purposes” (p. 2). Now that we have that out of the way, something technical could be the application of new learning theory, a useful web application, a gadget, or a development framework (for programming).
