As a curriculum coordinator and more recently as an educational consultant I have given many talks on educational ideas with a specific interest in the use of technology and progressive ideas about learning. I can help your organisation by coordinating professional development, delivering keynotes or running and organising workshops.
All the presentations I give are created for the specific audience I am talking with and are designed to initiate and support conversations around the topic in question.
Here are some examples talks I have given with slides either embedded or linked to:
December 2010: Motivation and learning (English and Vietnamese)
November 2009: Restless Digital Natives
Presentation and discussion on the impact on learning by cloud computing with teachers and parents.
September 2009: Assessment for learning
Presentation and Q & A for with parents regarding the new assessment policy we introduced at Yokohama International School. I was MS School Curriculum Coordinator at YIS from Dec 2007 to June 2010
