Personal Statement

I am a techno-optimist; I believe in the promise of technology to make our lives easier and freer. I am working on my doctorate in Educational Technology and am always interested in the ways we can reach global learner especially in light of the looming teacher shortage.

In life we are always learning, we learn from each other as part of the transmission of knowledge. With the emerging technologies and measurable advances in computing power, as educators we are poised once again to be on the cusp of the society cultural revolution (akin to when the book became the killer-ap). We live in the information age with more creation and organizing of data, shuffled, sorted, refined and then synthesized by learners of all types. We can either let entropy happen and allow chaos to emerge or we can tap into the resource and guide the direction of the processes governing acquisition and possession of knowledge. In the end, education involves the exploration and application of information; if we do nothing with our resources but merely collect them then we have not advanced.

I believe in the promise of technology to enable us to do more, to allow us to be more than able. As teachers we can share our enthusiasm for lifelong learning and encourage our students to go further than we have, to press forward into the unknown future armed with skills to adapt and create a promising future.
