Welcome to my blog! If you haven’t already figured out my name is Joe Wood. :-) I am an instructional technology coordinator in Northern California, but probably more than anything else I am a learner. JoeWoodOnline is my place to learn, reflect, and share new ideas, as well as a place to experiment.
Throughout my educational career I have held many titles and taught in a variety of settings. I’ve been a 2nd grade teacher, a technology coach, a middle school science teacher, a National Writing Project teaching consultant with Area 3 Writing Project, and most recently a Google Certified Teacher.
Each day, I have the fortunate experience of spending my time helping teachers innovate their instructional practice, making their classroom more relevant and intellectually challenging for their students. It’s a great adventure and in many ways I have learned more from the teachers and students I work with than I have probably taught. This blog is one of my attempts to collect, reflect, and share ideas with some of the hardest working educators I know. From time to time you might also find my thoughts on an issue or track one of my adventures across the state.
