OBJECTIVE & PHILOSOPHY:

My philosophy is to advance technology in education so that students and teachers become 21st century learners. It is essential for today’s teachers to know how to integrate technology into their curriculum, and create a PLN (Personal Learning Network), and equally important for students to create their own PLN so that learning is not just limited to the classroom. Instructional technology is not just about tools, but using the T-Pack model: technology, pedagogy, and curriculum. Students today do not know a world without technology, thus teaching them without technology is counter-intuitive. Technology needs to be accessible to students so that students are able to learn anywhere and anytime. Students use technology in their lives outside school, thus they need to be able to access the same technology in school. Technology is an avenue for students to become citizens of the world. My years of experience teaching students and teachers, as well as, the ongoing courses, conferences, and seminars I attend, gives me the perceptiveness and knowledge to work with teachers and students integrating technology into the classroom.
