None the Worse for Wear

It’s been a tough first semester. We’ve had some emergency bandwidth restructuring, a couple of firewall & filter upgrades, rollout of new iPad mobile carts and several more iPads for teachers, two new labs of Windows 7 laptops and a Win2K8 Server, a conversion to a new RTI system, and a whole slew of troubleshooting, network outages, and teacher assistance calls.

But I’ve survived.

With everything going on, I just didn’t feel like I had time to keep this blog going. I killed the old Twitter account and intended to nuke the site so I could concentrate on staying sane at work. However, there have been several technology developments with an impact on education, including the next phase of the tablet wars. I hadn’t yet built a strong readership for this blog, but it was a good outlet to discuss how these new developments were affecting our school.

So I’m going to take another crack at it. I’ve jumped into the Apple Volume Purchase Program fray at last, we have three Kindle Fire HDs on the way to test WhisperCast, I have an AppleTV and a flatscreen in every elementary classroom, and our iPad carts are seeing more and more use every week. We have a new building going up next year, and I intend to dabble in Apple iBooks Author and iTunes U soon. Plenty to do, plenty to talk about.

The new Twitter account is @EdTechSamurai. Hope to see some of you there.

More soon.
