Bridging the gap between educational technology research, development, and 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.

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.

As a lead course instructor I have worked with other faculty members to update the syllabus for EDTE 4200 Technology for Educators. The tweets below are part of a course-wide Twitter chat where seven instructors and over 200 students participate every semester.
