Contemplating MobileMind-ed’s Future

Upon returning from NECC in Atlanta last month, I have been resting up as well as tracking the online info regarding the conference. In doing so, I have been reflecting much more about my online presence. Over the past two years as an instructional technology specialist, my colleague and I have thought that we should create a space for our fellow ITS’ to collaborate on. This has not happened and I now admit if you build it and simply tell them about it (even use it in front of them) they simply will not come to use the tool.

Thus, I am thinking of writing more in a blog, either this one or another. I hate the thought of having to start another blog as I have started a few in the past. So, my thought is to roll this one into a blog about teaching and learning with technology and not solely on mobile devices for learning. There will still be that mobile learning presence in the blog, but it will be so much more. As you can imagine I don’t want to be limited within this blog and I don’t want to have several blogs dedicated to just one topic within the realm of learning with technology.

I’d love to read your thoughts on this as I contemplate the future of this blog. I am going to start posting to this a bit more regularly and you will see some changes. I’ve waited long enough to do this and I’m looking forward to connecting with you and more in the future.

  1. Brian, I know for sure you’d have lots to say about the bigger picture of teaching and learning with technology. There are a lot of blogs on that same subject. But, there are very few blogs like MobileMind-ed focusing on mobile learning. Just something to think about.

  2. I agree with you there Tony. Problem is I’m not doing as much with mobile devices in my current role. I would love to, yet the focus is not there for so many of the teachers whom I work with. I truly appreciate your thoughts.

    Thanks, Brian

  3. I say go for it here, Brian. The blog title is almost incidental… except as a microbrand, and you already have some recognition – and subscribers. You can always bring the blog “back home” later if you want to – and can – in a new role.

    Who knows – maybe someday people will ask you, “so how’d you come up with that name for your blog?”

  4. Hi Brian

    I so know where you are coming from. All my sites are called Mobile Technology in TAFE, but I made the decision a long time ago that I wanted to talk about everything not just m-learning and mobile devices. So that is what I do. This is how I have managed to keep my sites going whereas one of my other friends with an m-learning site now struggles.

    So I say go for it 🙂

  5. I think it is a good idea to blog in one spot. Learning and connecting leads to other topics we need to include in our posts.

    Perhaps you can let readers subscribe to different tags so that those who love the ‘focused’ content can stick to it.
