I'm a homeschool dad. After years of battling personal and academic issues in public school, we elected to bring our kids home to offer them a more customized educational experience. I like to call what we do an "entrepreneurial approach to education." By that, I mean that we, as a family/team, decide the best academic, extracurricular, and travel strategies to maximize learning, and above all, maximize life.
I’m also an entrepreneur. I’ve run a web development business for more than 15 years, as well as other endeavors on the web and brick and mortar. I tend to approach homeschool from this same entrepreneurial perspective.
As you might imagine, technology is something we use every day in a multitude of ways, so it was natural to include it in our homeschool plans to make the most out of education. It has afforded us easier travel both locally and across the country/world, simplified (which is a bit counterintuitive) our homeschool approach, and provided our kids with a broader range of educational opportunities.
My hope is that I can share at least some of what we've learned along the way to make using technology in homeschool a little easier.
