Professional Information: I am the founder and director of the Learning Revolution Project, the host of the Future of Education interview series, and founder and chair or co-chair of a number of annual worldwide virtual events, including the School Leadership Summit and the Global Education Conference, Library 2.0, the Future of Museums, Gaming in Education, and the Homeschool Conference.
I pioneered the use of social networking in education by creating the Classroom 2.0 social network in 2007, and supported and encouraged the development of thousands of other education networks, particularly for professional development. For the last eight years, I've run a large annual ed-tech unconference, now called Hack Education (previously EduBloggerCon). I blog, speak, and consult on educational technology, and my virtual and physical events build community and connections in education, with 130,000 members and over 100,000 participant log-ins annually.
have been the Emerging Technologies Chair for ISTE, a regular co-host
of the annual Edublog Awards, the author of "Educational Networking: The
Important Role Web 2.0 Will Play in Education," and the recipient of
the 2010 Technology in Learning Leadership Award (CUE). I have
consulted or served on advisory boards for Blackboard, CoSN,
Instructure, Intel, KnowledgeWorks Foundation, MERLOT,
Microsoft, Mightybell, New Media Consortium (NMC), Ning, PBS,
Promethean, U.S. Department of Education, the U.S. State Department, and
others typically focusing on educational technology and social
networking. A number of corporations and organizations support my
events, and you can see a list and more details of my projects at Web 2.0 Labs.
Personal Information: I was a foreign-exchange student through AFS to Brazil for a year in high school, and organized and led group tours for several years as my first job after college for Stanford's Alumni Association. I spent 2013 traveling around the world talking to people about education. I have the skin condition Vitiligo and created the world's largest social network for those with Vitiligo at VitiligoFriends.org as well as the UniquelyBeautiful.net site. I also run a network for members of the extended Hargadon family--Hargadon is an Irish name, and all Hargadons come from Sligo.
