Currently, I am interested in applying social technologies, (e.g. mobile services, online communities, and organizational collaborative tools) to the problems that challenge 21st century education. IT, both the information and technology components, hold great promise in bringing together individuals for the acquisition, creation, and application of new knowledge.
