I am the program leader for High School English at the International School Manila a rugby coach, and dabbler in all kinds of writing from screenplays, to novels, to educational materials typically to do with the teaching of IB A Literature or A Language and Literature. I also examine for the IB and lead workshops for them.
PURPOSE OF THIS BLOG
The purpose of this blog is for me to keep up with educational technology. Quite frankly, the world of technology is evolving so fast it is difficult to keep up with it, and as an educator it difficult to evaluate what new innovations are useful and should be incorporated into my teaching. The purpose of this blog is to explore new technological developments as part of evaluating whether to make or not to make them part of my teaching practice and whether I should require my students to use and apply this technology in their work for my classes and whether or not I would encourage my colleagues to do the same.
FUN FOR ME (AND MAYBE YOU) IN THE PHILIPPINES
I live in the Philippines, but don't have a favorite place to visit so much as an activity which is scuba diving. There are gazillion places to go diving in the Philippines. The fastest and most convenient and reasonably priced get away from Manila for diving is at Arthur's resort in Anilao. I might include more information about Arthur's here at a later date.
