Technology can be a tool for empowering each of us. We lead, learn and communicate in new ways each day. I truly believe that keeping in tune with those changes can help us to grow and work more effectively and make a positive difference in the world especially in education.
A lifelong learner and technology education enthusiast, I help leaders to reach their goals using new technologies. I founded Cara Tec, LLC an independent consulting firm. I have taught online college courses for several schools. I also have taught in the Graduate Educational Leadership programs as an adjunct professor. With 19 years experience in various roles as Digital Content Manager for World Meeting of Families 2015 and the Visit of Pope Francis to Philadelphia, Technology Director K-12, staff developer, I am enthusiastic about the ways in which technology can support all of us in achieving our goals and making positive impact. I use this blog for celebrating and exploring innovative use of digital technology and social media in and for learning.
