My mission is to apply my extensive experience and the findings from my own research and that of others to support the creation of policies and programs that increase the impact that ICT can have on educational reform, social improvement, and economic development. I am particularly interested in the use of ICT to improve education in developing and economically distressed countries.

My goal is to work on 2-3 high impact projects each year that make a difference in education. These projects include consultations, participation in expert panels and commissions, policy formulation, program evaluation, program design, proposal development, and contributions to policy white papers. My services are available to ministries of education, national government agencies, universities and research institutes, multi-governmental and non-government organizations, and multi-national corporations with a mission to improve the economic and social conditions of the countries in which they work.

My target concerns include:

  • The coordination of education ICT and reform policies with other economic and social policies such as those in telecommunications, science and technology, capacity development, and manpower development.
  • The reform of educational assessment such that it measures students’ ability to use ICT to solve complex problems in the contexts of real world situations and school subjects.
  • The evaluation of ICT programs that measures the contribution of technology on student learning.
  • The use of ICT and community technology centers to support development in disadvantaged communities.
  • The coordination of ICT policies with other education reform policies in pedagogy, curriculum, and assessment.
  • The design of teacher professional development programs that integrate ICT into the curriculum.

I am pleased to discuss how I might be able to help you with any of these issues.
