Lifecoaching: Tech, Dreams, and The Big Picture!
ePortfolios: We all stand on the shoulders of our own accomplishments!
Using technology is not about the latest toys and cutting edge tools. It can involve those but success that fits with the rest of your life and lifestyle is about using the right tools so you can always get right back to what you really love, living well!
The first step is to choose the tools that do what you need and then leave you alone. Endless alarms and notifications are great for the first few weeks but it does not take long to start driving you crazy. Pick the tools that get the job done.
Next, the mistake most of us make is to invest for a future that is in the distance or to get caught up in immediate concerns that do not build into something larger. Let's face it, we want to work smart, not hard. The trick is to combine both. We want to get some instant gratification but in a way that brings us closer to operating at a higher level.
Together, we will create a plan to get you on that path and keep you there!

Lesson Enhancement Training for Teachers
Lesson Enhancement is the core of technology integration. While any device initiative has to start with basics like setting up devices and training all stakeholders on basic use, acceptable use, best practices, and a number of other aspects of digital life, the whole point is the transformative impact these devices have on how we learn, how we work, and the new kinds of learning artifacts we can produce.
A big part of lesson enhancement is using Apps to add value to information. Adding several Apps together creates a Workflow. Each type of workflow creates different types of products. Workflows need to be personalized but they also need to produce the right kind of results, so there has to be balance and an experienced integrator is a very good thing!
The old adage that "if you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life," is one of those phrases that does not get old either.
We are poorly prepared for living lives of meaning because our schools teach us to do what we are "good at" which leaves us at the mercy of the opinons of others and as well intentioned as those teachers may be, they don't know enough about us to make the final decisions. Our parents (if we are lucky) urge us to pursue careers that give us more choices. The problem with that scenario is that it punts on what matters to us. Either scenario leaves us working towards a life that we are always waiting to begin... our "real life" is out there somewhere.
After teaching at the Smithsonian, the World Bank, 15+ years teaching art to kids, teaching technology and now opening a maker space, I can tell you that those folks who are living their "real life" all took big risks. Sometimes it is financial or social, but always it is a big emotional leap. Let me help you make that leap with the right focus so you will enjoy the journey and know why you are taking it every step of the way!
