Ideas in Education

The DIESOL Podcast

The DIESOL podcast is the only podcast with a specific focus on EdTech and Innovation in the field of ESOL. I co-host the show with award-winning teacher and technologist Ixchell Reyes. We discuss what works in ELT pedagogy and how to make it work in the classroom.

The HigherEdTech Podcast

The HigherEdTech Podcast focuses on technology in colleges and universities. I co-host it with Tim VanNorman, the instructional technologist at Irvine Valley College. The show aims to help professors better understand the ever-changing landscape of what’s happening with tech in their classes and on campus.

TESOL Int’l Blogger

I’ve been the primary blogger for all things EdTech at TESOL International since 2021. I explore ideas teachers can use in the classroom to use with their students immediately.

Beyond the Classroom

Professional Speaker

From international keynotes to local plenaries, I’m an experienced and engaging international presenter who can work with audiences of all sizes. Reach out if you’d like me to speak at your next event!

AI Explorer

I’m an active user and experimenter with AI in education. My approach is balanced but mostly optimistic. Follow me on LinkedIn where I share a lot of my explorations and ideas.

Flexible Workshop Leader

I’ve lead workshops for school districts, universities, and organizations across the globe. I’m a flexible facilitator who can help your teachers understand the ways tech can change their classrooms.

Find me on the socials

Please note that while I used to be very active on Twitter, I struggle to justify maintaining a presence there amid the erratic and harmful behaviour since the change in ownership. I haven’t found my new “place” but I’m actively searching.
