This Blog will represent my reflections on current topics in education, Catholic theology, and secondary social studies. My interests include; Pedagogy (especially constructivism and connectivism), Heutagogy, Educational Technology, Open Educational Resources (OERs), Theology, Digital Literacies, The Holy Bible, Social Media Literacies, Professional Development, Leadership, Peer to Peer Learning, Badges, and Game based learning.
My background includes fourteen years of teaching eighth grade U.S. History. Within my fourteen years of teaching I taught three years of ninth grade U.S. History, three years of seventh grade introduction to the social sciences, two years of eleventh grade world studies, and a semester of eleventh and twelfth grade psychology. I have had an affinity for gadgets and using technology in education ever since I got my first computer in 1987. When I began teaching in 1995, I was constantly reinventing my curriculum based upon new technologies.
