Personal Statement

I am interested in discovering creative and systematic ways in which classroom teachers can integrate digital video and photography, the Internet, and Multiple Intelligence Theory with subject matter content in order to enhance teaching and learning processes. I am currently serving on the Editorial Review Board of Contemporary Issues in Technology & Teacher Education English, an international peer-reviewed publication of the Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education (AACE). Additionally, I serve as a research paper proposal reviewer for the National Education Computing Conference.
