I think this is an essential skill in optimizing and speeding up your work process and productivity. And it’s something you can apply to most everything to enhance your learning.
I agree with you that technology can help your learning and help personalize it so you can connect with what your learning more. And teachers shouldn't hesitate to apply technology to their students' learning for fear of students abusing the use of technology because it's their learning they are jeopardizing not anyone else's. And the teacher's get paid either way. But you can apply technology and blogging to your own learning by yourself to further your learning and open more options and ways to learn.
