Like many of you, my goal is to initiate, coach, cultivate, educate, advocate and facilitate digital technology.
I am an advocate of project base learning, eLearning, technology-based teaching methods and preparing students for the 21st century, i.e., digital-age literacy, effective communication and inventive thinking, work ethic, collaboration, social responsibility, critical thinking and problem-solving. Teaching our students to be imaginative and original, entrepreneurs, designers, inventors are also 21st century skills--- integrate the 21st Century Skills into the existing lessons, into the academic standards, into the curriculum instruction, and into the assessment systems of our schools.
As an information technologist, I teach the integration of information technology in the New York City Department of Education. My students and I are adapting the Web 2.0 tools.
