Welcome to Education Illumination, my personal look into the world of teaching, as well as a place to explore my passion of lighting design for the stage. As a student in the Education Media Design Technology Masters Degree program at Full Sail University, I will be using this blog to comment, reflect, and share the ideas and experiences that come through re-designing education for students in the 21st century.
So why a blog? Haha, good question. I've never thought of myself as a "blogger", it sounds like something strictly reserved for people who understand things like HTML5, Tweeting, or Lady Gaga. Me? I'm more of an "Atari, MTV, and Iron Maiden" person myself. But hey, that's the great thing about the EMDT program. I almost feel younger with every new technology that I try out in an effort to incorporate new learning tools into my classroom. Granted, "blogging" probably won't get rid of my grey hairs, or my profound love for most things that were popular in the 1980's, but so far, it actually seems like a cool (and easy!) way to communicate and share with others who have my same interests.
So there it is. Post number 1 of the Education Illumination blog. Stay tuned for more enlightening posts, covering topics in education and lighting design. (and maybe the occasional life rant, as well)
