Pedagogy

Welcome to Eddie’s Class!

I am a middle school teacher, university lecturer, newly-minted doctoral graduate, and keynote speaker. As the proud recipient of the Computer Using Educators 2018 LeRoy Finkle Fellowship and the California State University, Fullerton 2016 Edwin Carr Fellowship, I strive to give my low socioeconomic students the opportunity to lead in the classroom and at the university. In my circles, I am known for facilitating children-led professional development for adults. You can find me regularly presenting at the National CUE Conference and the International Society for Technology in Education.

CSU Fullerton Faculty Presentation

Teaching at CSU Fullerton Master’s in Educational Technology Program

As an adjunct faculty member I have taught courses in instructional design and portfolio development. Typically my focus is on bridging theory and pedagogy for k-12 educators. The videos below are part of the course EDEL 518B Issues in the Instructional Design of Classroom Software where I go full-method actor to play the role of a client and university students play the role of app developers. Throughout the course students meet different checkpoints and eventually develop a prototype application that they test in an actual classroom environment.

21st Century Technology (iBook)

As a middle and high school teacher, this book is my guide for other teachers to explore instructional technology. In the last few years, my students created virtual worlds, hoax websites, and film festivals using animation software. Enjoy my labor of love and transform your students from passive consumers to active creators.

Creating Virtual Reality

Students can create 3D in virtual reality through many different technologies. My classroom students have done so by creating their own 3D models and publishing them to Sketchfab.com. Here you can find my VR resources for presentations at local conferences and the National Computer Using Educators Conference of 2017.
