Welcome to my work in Lamar University’s Digital Learning and Leading Program, EDLD – 5314

There’s much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn about implementing e-Portfolios in Career and Technical Education. I hope you enjoy the site. For more information regarding the Digital Learning and Leading program at Lamar University, follow the link below:

Presentation: Reflecting on the Past to See the Future

We stand on the edge of an opportunity that has not existed in education, embracing the challenges of the new hybrid classroom and virtual classrooms to do something unique for our school and students, a truly student centered learning experience using e-Portfolios. The e-Portfolio is the best fit for a CTE environment and supports school to work and college readiness initiatives. This is the future of school to work and college readiness documentation for student achievement in the United States for the vast majority of students.

Digital Learning in a Global Context Literature Review

The research supporting the Innovation Plan Proposal. This literature review focuses on Information Communication Technologies, (ICT), implemented worldwide. The review looks at three basic questions:

  1. What worked?
  2. What could have been done better?
  3. How do we apply the lessons learned?

After completing the second literature review, the innovation plan will be adjusted for teacher professional learning prior to implementation. Professional Learning, supported with time to practice, model desired outcomes, and peer-2-peer teacher support throughout the implementation process. Lack of teacher training and support is one of the most glaring faults uncovered in the research.
