2. JM Ibanez' blog: Soul of a New Machine : 12:44
I've just purchased a copy of Soul of A New Machine by Tracy Kidder, from Books For Less. AFAIK, it's out-of-print, though I may be mistaken. Written circa-1981, it is a must-read for any self-respecting tech geek about the creation of a (good Lord, this is old) new 32-bit minicomputer. Hurray for me. =)
Amen to that! Soul of a New Machine is a terrific book. It's a gripping story of how a cool piece of hardware was built, and I loved its vivid description of the computer industry back then - long hours, high stress, great wizardry... Must read!

In order to do that, it is not enough to know the subject well. I also need to know how to teach effectively - how to engage and excite students, how to draw out their questions and guide them to answers. I want to be able to reach each student - not as a faceless, nameless crowd I teach to, but as individuals from whom I can learn and with whom I can share what I know.
It will not be easy. Not all my lessons will proceed according to plan. Not all the examples I use will be clear and understandable. But armed with a passiono for the field and a desire to help people learn effectively, I hope to do the best I can.
I believe that formal training in education - from formulating lesson plans to assessing student accomplishments - will help me become a more effective teacher. With its emphasis on Ignatian ideals such as "magis" and "cura personalis", an Atenean education will help me learn how to help prepare other people to be men and women for others.
