About Me:

I am the Director of IT and the Distance Learning Program at Lexington Theological Seminary in Lexington, Kentucky.

My research interest lies in emerging technology and how this type of technology and social media can promote lifelong learning.

Hi Ben.  I'm new to the PLN group concept, and I'm looking forward to learning from and contributing to your group over time.

Hi Ben: This group is a good fit for my professional and educational paths. I am a library assistant for a community based distance delivery program at a small Canadian university, and an education master's student hoping to specialize in educational technology. Recently, I've become involved in developing online courses using blogs to convey assignments, discussion, and online texts. My aim is to establish a design research component into these courses to evaluate their effectiveness. I look forward to contributing to this group.

Hi Ben! I am a doctoral candidate at Western Connecticut State University in the Instructional Leadership program. I have studied for three years and have just defended my dissertation proposal and received Instructional Review Board approval to conduct research. I am passionate about life long learning and technology. My research study will provide online professional development in technology to K-12 teachers. Thank you for building this space for us! I look forward to collaborating with group members.

Thank you for the link to Qik, Vision and FutureLab. I am boggling my mind over there right now!

I look forward to the conversations that will take place on this group. I do a lot of instruction and presentations with web 2.0 technologies and how they are infused with the Pk-16 curriculum and content areas to support teaching and learning. The threaded discussions so far in this group are very appealing to me!

Keys to Change Leadership

Leading change to help school practitioners embrace not only technology in teaching but in assessment, grading, and outcomes can be a challenge.

With his experience as an implementation change agent, Dr. Dillon served as coach, mentor and guide for school leaders and School Improvement Teams embarking on this change.As the picture of how to best support…See More

I thought I'd eventually be out of a job.

I ask a student to attach a file to an email and I get a blank stare.I tell the class to open a new tab so they have two websites open at the same time and I have to show them how to do that a few times.I assume that since they are growing up with technology they naturally know how to use it, but I am shown on a daily basis that this is not the case. They know how to get to their game website and play till their eyeballs fall out, but when I ask them to find a file they created yesterday, they…See More
