Profile Information

Academic/Professional Biography
I've been working with computing for learning since 1972. I write, edit, develop curriculum and learning materials - online, on paper and face to face -- do anthropological and grounded theory research and contract teach/coach/facilitate.

I'm particularly interested in revitalizing our concept of schooling in the context of today's technologies. I believe in empowering learners at the earliest possible age through
- providing thoughtfully designed discovery environments,
- promoting self-understanding of the learner's own cognitive styles, strengths and preferences,
- learner-centered coaching in critical thinking and controlled experimentation
- encouraging learning partnerships with cognitive and experiential peers (as compared with age-mates),
- insuring safe, healthy, adult-supervised social spaces for learners who are not able to negotiate their communities independently.

I have a Masters in the Design and Evaluation of Educational Programs from Stanford University School of Education and have completed all but my dissertation for my PhD there.

My PhD minor is in psychology. My Bachelor's is from Sonoma State University in Philosophy. I've also studied natural sciences (you know, the 'hard' kind), math, music and lots of other stuff.

A formal CV is available on request.

Hi Lisa,
We (BTC) filled out our Agreement paperwork last Spring, and I thought I was listed as the primary contact person.
Yes, I would be happy to share the info with the rest of my colleagues!
In fact, my presentation is scheduled for Thursday, September 16--so that will be easy.
