Over the years I have served as a director of technology, an instructional technology specialist, and a high school librarian. I am currently an (online) instructor at Bellevue University in Nebraska and an independent educational technologist.
As an EdTech & Curriculum Consultant, my focus is no-nonsense training, instructional design, and consulting services for companies and schools looking to better integrate technology into instruction or move some/all instruction online.
I have a Masters of Education in K12 Library Media studies from Plymouth State University and a Doctor of Education in Instructional Technology and Distance Education from Nova Southeastern University.
My academic research focus is Digital Literacy, Flipped Learning, Open Educational Resources (including MOOCs), Fostering Creativity, Learning Technologies, The Hype Cycle in Educational Technology, Learning Analytics, and Educational Technology in a Global Context (think “social justice” relating to EdTech).
Currently my family and I “float” between Maine and New Hampshire depending on if the boys’ school is in session. In both locations, I try and spend as much time on, in, under, or near the water as possible. With frequent trips to random coffee shops and tea houses to get work done. Our long term goal is leveraging our location independence for wider and longer term travel.
