Doug Peterson (@dougpete) is one of the first educators that I started following on Twitter. He’s a prolific blogger and a leading voice on technology in education. Doug’s helped me see the true power in connecting with others. He constantly supports educators from all over Ontario with his Twitter lists, blog Livebinders, and regular #FollowFriday tweets.
Doug’s one of the people that I interacted with online for quite a while before I ever met him in person. I’ll never forget the first time that I met him. It was at ECOO last year: I almost felt “star struck” to finally meet someone that inspires me so much. Many thanks then to Doug for making me feel truly honoured this week when he asked to interview me for a post on his blog. Doug, your questions made me think deeply about what I do and why I do it. I can’t thank you enough for this amazing opportunity!
