I'm the co-founder of Collaborative Educational Solutions. I am currently a K-12 Technology Staff Developer helping to run our district's 1:1 initiatve. I've also taught middle and high school English. In 2008 I founded the non-profit organization “Project: Global Inform”, and I wrote "The 2.0 Teacher" in 2009. I received my MS in Global and International Education from Drexel University, and I am a certified Microsoft Innovative Educator.
I believe students should learn through inquiry-driven experiences, and that the main role of a 21st century educator should be a classroom facilitator and learning coach. Project-based learning can (and should) be aligned to the common core standards. All of my projects are CCSS aligned.
