Redesigning and Re-Tooling this Blog... and Life

Hey all,
My name's Mike and this is a "new," old blog. I originally began this blog for an information class last semester, so if you scroll through my older posts, you'll find class projects and musings about using technology in the classroom. Now, with the advent of this Digital Civilization course, I've taken it upon myself to not only redefine this blog, but to shift my own learning paradigms.
I expect to stretch myself with this class. In fact, while looking over Google reader today, I found an new challenge for students involving blogging. While some may say I've taken the easy way out by using an older blog, I signed up for this ten week challenge to improve my blogging skills and increase my PLN (personal learning network). I feel good about this decision; I just hope some of you will join me in this venture.
