What about Michael Johnston Learning?
This is the next phase – I always felt that the name of Michael Johnston Learning came with a little ego,which was never the intention. But by evolving into a specific title, I believe I am able to offer more focused attention on the topic of educational technology. As this is a specific area of professional interest for me, it will be a stronger product and be less scattered – some of the topics I looked at previously had no connection and so the whole thing felt disjointed.
The plan is that that doesn’t happen here.
My own site at michael-johnston.com will be used as a base site – pulling together all the content I create and acting as an online portfolio for my professional work – both academic and in industry. It’s also good for my students to be able to see what I teach in web design isn’t just theory, but theory I put into practice with every website I create. Having said all that, I now have some work to do on my own site to bring it up to date with everything I’ve just said!
So more of the same then?
Not at all!
As I said, it’s much more focused and I intend for the content to be more varied. I want to produce video content, podcasts, how to guides, and articles that make you think about how to implement and integrate educational technology into your curriculum.
