Owain and I post in front of the local high school, where he's a student and I'm a board member.

Story
Tagline
Researcher, futurist, speaker, writer, consultant, educator, homesteader. Author of THE NEW DIGITAL STORYTELLING.
Introduction
Now: I research emerging technologies for teaching and learning.  Social media, mobile devices, gaming, digital storytelling - I write, speak, teach, blog, tweet, get interviewed, and consult about these, then write some more.

Home: I live in Vermont, up in the mountains, half off the grid, with my splendid family: Ceredwyn (wife), Gwynneth (daughter), Owain (son), and a bunch of animals.

Then: born in NYC.  Childhood and first schooling on Long Island.  Later schooling in Michigan.  English professor in Louisiana.

Always: geek.  Love books.  Lift weights.
