a popular educational dish combining together technology, spicy perspectives, and potent trends and issues all sautéed in pedagogy and simmered in the collective intelligence until served on its own or as an appetizer to a larger discussion.
I – cmduke, Chris – use this space as my online professional home: my primary digital footprint. The site aggregates and presents various data streams I generate through my use of the web and my engagement of my online learning network: shared news, twitter stream, shared bookmarks and blog posts. It’s always a work in progress and will eventually have links to all presentations and resources I’ve developed for personal and professional use.
While it began with an exclusive focus on general educational technology, EdTechatouille has evolved to a broader focus on any professional, educationally related (K-20) issues I may be engaging or exploring. At the moment, that will typically include curriculum and assessment in higher education, computer literacy of college learners, emerging educational technologies, distance learning theory and practice, instructional design, pedagogy, and general technology industry news which I believe has implications for education. Posts focused on virtual environments have their own MUVE Forward category and RSS feed which represents the blog of that name that I used to maintain separately.
The name of this site – EdTechatouille – came from the combination of (a) my need to share and comment on new technology tools and educational technology issues and trends and (b) my seeing Pixar’s Ratatouille and reading Sarah Robbins suggestion of the movie’s story as an allegory for Web2.0. Once I had the name EdTechatouille, I *had* to create the site.
