Be Remarkable ~ Be A Leader

Isn't it amazing how time flies?  It has almost been one year since I have started my new educational journey as an ed tech consultant and national/international keynote presenter.  All I can say is that it has been the best year of my life!  I have had the opportunity to "be remarkable" as an inspirational technology leader in my field of study this past year, but this success is due to all the wonderful and admirable individuals I work with on a daily basis- these individuals are YOU! By your contributions to education and by your uplifting stories from the trenches in the classroom or withn your administrative role, you have motivated me to challenge myself this year to be an extraordinary leader.  

All of YOU have assisted in the transformation of my individual self-worth and dedication to the  positive impacts on our 21st century world of education. With this educational empowerment has come the positive change within me to create, to innovate and to deliver renewed and inspiring technology integration workshop offerings, unique online and blended graduate and master coursework opportunities, and motivational technology keynote presentations to inspire life long learning in our K-16 teaching and learning environments.

Thank you for inspiring me to challenge myself every day to keep my "eye on the prize" that is... our 21st digital native learners and our 21st century dynamic educators. Here is a thank you to all of you with an inspiration video to keep you all inspired through these long winter months ahead, and to welcome Spring with open arms.

2017 Beginning of the New Year: A Learning Discovery Escapade

The holiday break was very well needed and appreciated, and allowed for me to personally and professionally take a break from my education strategist job and relax with some amazing educational research articles to read- as they have been sitting on the back burner for a few months. Some topics of interest that have caught my interest and full attention is the most recent case studies on our student learning population of Generation Z. Yes, these are the kiddos born from 1995 -2010, and these are the young adults now entering the majestic years of college for the first time or are deeply engaged in a full-time job as their new career.


Did you now that these Gen Z students are completely different than Gen Y? Yet many of our k12 educators, and university professors are still teaching to the knowledge base of Gen Y, and have not caught up to the new learning needs and student interest of this dynamic population. Everything they are learning is through a multi-sensory and multi touch inte…

SchoolNet South Africa Conference Reflections

Well....I am back, back after being gone for a week of travel and presenting in Bloemfontein, South Africa to present at the national SchoolNet SA Conference. I was thrilled to be asked back for the third time by good friends Gerald Roos and Janet Thomson from School Net.

It is always an adventurous journey to travel to South Africa, as there is no direct flight of how to get there- but the longest part of the journey is the flight from Atlanta, Georgio to Johannesburg, South Africa of 17 hours. The total air travel and airport exchanges take about 24-30 hours one way.  So.... yes I am one tired girl today, but I have a few days to catch up on my sleep and acclimate back to the 7 hour time change.




Upon my arrival to the Bloemfontein, South Africa I was greeted by the most lovely Janet Thomson, Executive Director of SchoolNet, who assisted me with my transportation to the hotel we would be staying at, and to also preview the venue of the conference location. This year's conference wa…

Reenergize and Refocus This Summer- Change Your Mindset!

It has been a whirlwind of a month already and it is only June 3rd. It has been an amazing week working with my Intel family in Phoenix, AZ. The experience to design, create and contribute to the greater good of the future of education has filled my edtech bucket. I am so very thankful and grateful to Vanessa Jones, Theresa Maves, Anne Batey, the entire Big Monocol team and Lars Lindstrom's video crew as a collaborative team we worked on an incredible upcoming video segment to support a game-infused learning series of online coursework. Cannot share any more at this time- but this content will be a game-changer of how we deliver ongoing professional development in the education world. 
Working with inspired educators and incredible talented videographers has truly grounded me again this week, knowing that there are individuals in the edtech industry that constantly give 200%, never complain and contribute to a finalized product that will impact so many in so many countries worldwi…
