Hello world!

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Hey everyone, my name is Michael Roche and I am a senior at UMW.  I am an out of state student from Pennsylvania.  Along with being a History major here and Mary Washington I am also in the Secondary Education Department.  I am involved with a few things here on campus including being Vice President of the Club Baseball team, a Washington Tour Guide, and have been involved in Freshmen Orientation every year I have been here.  I love to play ice hockey in my spare time whenever I can and meet new people.

When I saw Dr. McClurken’s class for the Information Age I jumped in to register for it.  Last semester I look Dr. McClurken’s Technology and Culture class, and thoroughly enjoyed it.  I really like how Dr. McClurken incorporates modern technology into history class, rather than the traditional methods of research.  I am excited to use new and creative ways to present information in the class as well as studying the evolution of the spread of information from cave paintings, as we brought up in class, to the Internet and devices we all use today.
