Exploring the use of iPads and mobile devices in education.
Sam has been leading technology applications in business and education for over 25 years and brings a wealth of experience and insight to any educational endeavor.
Currently working as a School Director and an independent educational technology consultant, Sam advises schools and administrators on integration of technology into 21st century learning initiatives.
Sam presents at national and international conferences and gives workshops to educational groups. He is recognized as a prominent expert on technology and educational reform and has been very vocal in supporting the use of mobile technology in education. Sam has consulted for government groups, most recently having been invited to meet and personally advise the Prime Minister of Greece on the use of mobile technology in that country's education system.
Technology is often seen as the means to modernize educational systems. Viewed on its own however, technology will not advance educational institutions. Sam stresses the need to utilize technology within a holistic vision of student-centered, experientially based educational models that target the evolving needs of 21st century learners.
