Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Welcome to my author page. I've been working in education and technology for over 25 years and I'm a firm believer in the potential of technology to change and revitalize our educational systems. I've spoken at conferences around the world about technology and educational reform.

I've consulted for small schools, districts and even governments; most recently having been invited to advise the Prime Minister of Greece about the use of mobile devices in their education system. I'm the author of the recently released “iPad in Education for Dummies” book published by Wiley Press and I also founded and manage the very popular iPads in Education Ning community website - - that has a membership of many thousands of educators worldwide.
