I’m a 21st Century Learning Consultant for the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board: a small team of elementary and secondary school teachers charged with creating the essential conditions for teaching and learning in a digital age, and building the capacity of our colleagues in the classroom to help kids change the world.

I’d like to pretend I’m the lead developer of the HWDSB Commons, a social learning network built using open source technologies (WordPress & BuddyPress) that connects students and staff from the board to the wide world outside; but really I just activate plugins and break things. Maybe I’m the architect (as long as that doesn’t insult architects).

I’m easily distracted by shiny things.
