Hi, I'm Ben Wildeboer.
Professionally, I'm interested in designing instructional environments that allow students time to collaboratively work as scientists, the effective use of technology by students and teachers, and standards-based grading. I've also served as an Instructional Technology Coach, have led professional development sessions for teachers on a wide variety of (usually technology related) topics, and was a co-organizer of EdCamp Connecticut.
If you'd like to contact me, you can either leave a comment on this site or email me directly ben (dot) wildeboer (at) gmail (dot) com. If you're interested in hiring me for the 2012-2013 I'd be happy to send my resume your way.
Through this blog I hope to share my struggles, successes, and thoughts. I encourage your feedback; both positive and negative. One of the wonderful things about this format is the ability for readers to interject their own thoughts and ideas. I hope to learn much from those who stop by to read what I've written.
