Welcome to my personal website! Be sure to check out my blog where I talk about teaching 2750 students, or interesting education articles I find. My portfolio has of the events I’ve had a roll in here at Virginia Tech and other projects I’ve worked on. Cheers!
I work as a education technical assistant in the Department of Geography at Virginia Tech. I specialize in research, incorporation, and implementation of new educational technologies and social media/networking into large and ultra-large classroom formats, with a specific focus on creating teacher-student and student-student interaction opportunities. I believe the appropriate use of social media and communication tools can foster the creation of a thriving classroom community which, in turn, can encourage more meaningful online dialogue, group problem-solving, and foster unique learning opportunities and special events. I am all about maximizing the advantageous utility of learning technologies to foster student/faculty and student/student engagement.
