My desire is to see students around the world involved in learning that is personal, relevant and meaningful.

I'm a passionate advocate for learning that matters, and because of this, I started an education society called OliveUs. Our InStill Life program enables students to create real change in the world by issuing micro loans to farmers around the world, while at the same time, seeing how the math, science, art, technology and language arts that they are learning supports and interconnects into a real world project.

I would like us to consider young learners not as students in a classroom, but as citizens of the world, and with that respect, to offer them participatory, engaging explorations.

My book and workshop, The Director in the Classroom, looks at how to integrate filmmaking in the classroom as a vehicle for content exploration, skill development and most importantly, connection to community, family and self.

My Mattering workshops explore engagement and relevance in learning and helps educators take what they are currently teaching and move it towards a richer experience for student and teacher alike.

I speak about these examples and visions of Creating Media That Matters and of Mattering at conferences around the world and then work with schools, districts and learning organizations to help them move their instructional design and teacher development towards a learning experience that is formed by engagment and purpose.

Education is transforming, there is beautiful evidence of this all around the world, and i am proud to add what I can to the metamorphosis that is underway.
