Chicago, Illinois, United States
My research, design and teaching center on the nexus of scholastics and experience in education. I am an educator with interests, understanding and experience in the fields of interdisciplinary innovation, ICT in education, mobile learning, project based learning, networked learning and experiential education. I help individuals, organizations and schools turn education into personalized and learner centered environments. More broadly, I create programs like The Bridge Year at KWE, Networked Learning Ecology North America and Global Civ that drive educational innovation in the fields of networked learning, project based learning, field studies and instructional design. I routinely teach in the field and consult on research projects with schools and with web design firms. As of May 2014 I am excited to join the founding team at GEMS World Academy Chicago.
