  • Coffee with a Little bit of Cream is a podcast I currently work on with Shomari Jones and Dr. Paul Sutton.  Their dream is create a world where all children receive equitable education.
  • Project Charter I worked on for the Bellevue School District regarding their MTSS software.  Goals for the project include using the software to pursue equitable access for all students to universal instruction and support.

  • Worked on the following module with fellow coworker Emily Starrett at the Bellevue School District. The module explains how administrators and educators can use our Data Insights software to successfully instruct their students and/or make school or district-wide decisions that positively impact students.

AECT Standards (2012 version)

CONTENT KNOWLEDGE - Candidates demonstrate the knowledge necessary to
create, use, assess, and manage theoretical and practical applications of educational technologies and processes. 
  • For the 2008 TCC conference, I discussed my article about Videoblogging in Education.  The PowerPoint below from the presentation discusses how instructors can use videoblogging as an assignment that covers the various parts of multiple intelligences.  Feel free to read the accompanying paper about videoblogging in education for more detailed information.  Read a review of the presentation at Design for Learning.
  •  Example: Videoblogging in Education

CONTENT PEDAGOGY - Candidates develop as reflective practitioners able to demonstrate effective implementation of educational technologies and processes based on contemporary content and pedagogy.

LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS - Candidates facilitate learning by creating, using, evaluating, and managing effective learning environments.
  • I created the following online module called Plagiarisks! for my Master's Project in 2006. The online project taught high school students how to adhere to intellectual property law. After creating the module, I tested it on a class of high school students with a pre-test, embedded test (see module below), and post-test. Example: Plagiarisks online module (no longer posted online)
  • A video I produced for the College of Adult and Professional Studies on the importance of using rubrics in higher education.  Example: Rubrics (Part 1)
  • MIT online mentor training module (feel free to give it a try)

PROFESSIONAL KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS - Candidates design, develop, implement, and evaluate technology-rich learning environments within a supportive community of practice.
  • While working at the University of Hawai'i, I developed a proposal for the College of Education virtual campus within the virtual online environment of Second Life. Throughout the design process, I considered the types of people from the University of Hawai'i who would use the virtual environment, the types of community and educational activities they would participate in within the environment, and the cultural representation of Native Hawaiian architecture that would be displayed.  The proposal was then sent out to prospective designers for bids.  Example : Second Life proposal (PDF)
  • Draft of a job aid describing how Northwest University students can upload their edTPA materials to Foliotek.

RESEARCH - Candidates explore, evaluate, synthesize, and apply methods of
inquiry to enhance learning and improve performance.

  • In 2012, I completed my dissertation, studying the learning characteristics and expectations of adult learners in online 3D virtual environmentsI used Malcolm Knowles' adult learning theory as my theoretical framework.  Interviews, focus groups, and observations were used as my methodology.  Constant-comparative method was used to analyze the data. More research is needed for this particular topic.  However, results from the study hopefully can aid other instructors who teach adult learners in these types of environments.  Example: Andragogical Characteristics and Expectation of University of Hawai'i Graduate Students in 3D Multiuser Virtual Environments
