Jeff Laird Introduction

My name is Jeff Laird.

I currently teach Information & Communications Technology and Digital Media at the high school level in Victoria, BC.  My background is wide and varied in education and I have taught K-12 and was given the illustrious title of “distributed education applications specialist” while working at the college level.

I have always had a strong focus of using technology in my teaching practice and over the past few years have focused on creating a blended learning environment migrating coursework to Moodle and allowing students to blur the barrier between time and space in their classroom.

I have a great interest in the use of games, emulation, and social networking in education with a strong bent towards open source philosophies the delivery and development of educational technology.

Ack!  Which module should I choose?

Hi Jeff,

Good to see you again. And I agree: what module do I choose? Well, I chose one, but it wasn’t easy. Most of them look promising and interesting.

Hey Jeff

I am interested in gaming and social networking as well, particularly how they can be incorporating into the educational arena.

We share a common area of interest with regards to the learning potential of gaming and simulations.

I look forward to working with you.
