As an Instructional Technologist and former member of the Faculty, I am extremely interested in exploring the ways in which technology interacts with and influences pedagogy. While serving as a member of the Mathematics and Computer Science Department at Wooster, I began experimenting with various technologies. These experiments eventually led to me becoming an instructional technologist and to me introducing Moodle and WordPress Multisite to Wooster in 2005-2006. (I regret my choice of name for our Moodle instance but feel I did alright with the WordPress installation.) I have since helped develop and conduct the Instructional Technology Faculty Fellows Program and have introduced a number of technologies and approaches to Wooster. I am always on the look out for new technologies and enjoy discussing the ways in which new technologies can impact the classroom or even better improve learning. I am an avid gamer and enjoy playing World of Warcraft with my wife and daughter (quite a different family activity than Monopoly).

    Great to have you in the Studio, Jon! I actually kind of like the name “Woodle”–I picture a fuzzy woodland creature. I’d be interested in your thoughts about gaming as a spark/ structure for creativity and innovation, as well as about potential applications for some of the Studio approaches in the classroom.

    Hey Jon. I too regret that you didn’t call your Moodle system ‘Moo-COW’ 🙂 A brilliant but subversive moniker methinks.

      Ha ha. I’m really starting to get flack about it now.
