New blog in English – for networking and sharing ideas

leave a comment »

For about 2,5 years, I’ve been blogging and tweeting mainly in Finnish.

My main motive for starting an English blog is to network and share ideas with colleagues wordwide. I work as senior lecturer in automotive electronics in Metropolia UAS. I’ve been having a little problem when trying to do this with Finnish blog (and Twitter account): the average age of Finnish teachers of my subject (automotive electronics, or even just electronics) is about 50 years, and writing a blog or having a Twitter account is not very popular in this social group. To be straight, I’ve not found a single Finnish (automotive) electronics teacher having a blog or Twitter account.

Few weeks ago I decided to “go international” and start an English Twitter account and an English blog. In my Finnish blog I’ve been writing about anything on Earth, but in this blog I’ll try to keep focus on educational matters and (automotive) electronics. I hope that by doing this I can share good practices with my colleagues over the world.
