    My Story

    I'm a Global Minecraft Mentor, Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert, Surface Expert, published education researcher and recently a Microsoft HoloLens Educator. I currently teach grade 6-12 technology and I have experience in Minecraft Education, Virtual Reality, Windows 10 game development with Unity 3D, Drones in Education (Dronography) and app development among other STEM and STEAM education areas. I've presented my work with Microsoft tools at a provincial "Think Tank" presentation experience which included the Minister of Education. I develop projects for Minecraft Education Edition including a very popular Empathy Education Project - Building Character. My Minecraft presentation is called "Sail the 7Cs with Minecraft Education Edition!" In this presentation I speak about how Minecraft can develop 21st century skills and is therefore more important than just a curriculum demonstration tool in the classroom.
