I am a professor and researcher of how Educational Technology affects the teaching and learning processes. I began my teaching career when Apple II E's entered classrooms and there was no such thing as the Internet as we know it today. I have a love/hate relationship with technology. I love using all kinds of technologies and believe they can be very beneficial for helping students learn. These tools can inspire some individuals who have never before enjoyed the learning process; offer collaborative learning opportunities; open classroom walls to a global audience; provide just-in-time, flexible learning; create forums where anyone can present their ideas and products to the world; and allow for new and exciting experiences that would not be possible without them. However, as with any other tools, technologies have their challenges--they can be frustrating when they don't work; they are time-consuming to learn; they can be overused or misused; they pose new, dangerous, and yet unresolved ethical issues; they create disruption for traditional learning environments; and they are changing the very nature of our society--social relations, communication, education, privacy, perception of space, knowledge-gathering, shrinking world, etc.


  • Technology integration in educational environments (i.e., STEM integration in teacher professional development, technology integration in teacher preparation)
  • Cognitive factors associated with the use of technology (i.e., attitude, motivation, self-regulation, cognitive load)
