Class Information:
Class Description:
I am the creator of Digital Wish, and I have been training educators to use technology for over 12 years. Teachers need technology...or they can't effectively prepare students to succeed in the global economy.
Position:
Founder of Digital Wish
Needs:
The technology shortfall affects schools across the country. It's not a wealth issue. There are wealthy and poor schools alike, all lacking in basic technology for students. In fact, many wealthier district have even less funding for technology, due to the current legislation. There are at least 10 states that provide exactly $0 for technology funding in schools. That's a crisis. Businesses, schools, parents, and students need to band together and network to fundraise for technology in schools. It's America's future.
My Philosophy:
Technology in education is "Manifest Destiny"! This is the world we live in.
Personal Information:
About Me:
I'm working hard every day to band together businesses, philanthropists, private donors, and the press, to work towards solving the technology shortages in schools.
College and Degrees:
I have a BS in Statistics and a BS in Communications/ Television Production from Syracuse University, graduating with honors.
Activities:
Computers, photography, kids, TV production, sledding, and skating. Singing, music and pretty much anything my kids are doing would be my favorite activity.
Favorite Quotes:
The world is indeed flat!
Employment History:
I worked in television stations for 5 years, and did a year-long stint as a studio hand on Fox News in Baltimore. Then I moved to California and designed computer games for a few year. Along with the kids came the jobs in education. Soon I started my own software licensing firm, then I started Tool Factory, then I started Digital Wish.
Why Do I Teach?:
It's America's future. It's my kid's future.
