Current projects and research interests include the development of 21 century
curriculum. Critical attributes of this curriculum include the use of technologies and
multimedia as tools to deliver an interdisciplinary, project-based, integrated, real-world,
rigorous curriculum that is relevant to the students of the21st century. Our students, or
iKids, live in a media and technology saturated world. Curriculum and instruction for
the21st century must be aligned to that world.

Key components include online collaborative projects, the use of multimedia, and service

I am currently in the process of developing courses to be delivered via a virtual
classroom, i.e., online courses which are real-time, live events. I am also developing
online courses which are self-paced. These virtual and self-paced online courses are
appropriate for K-16 students as well as for professional development workshops for

21st Century Schools
WORKSHOPS – presented in various location across the United States

Designing the 21 st Century Classroom – a curriculum design and classroom strategies

Academics in Action – Service Learning - a one-day introduction to service learning in
which participants examine the components of a service learning project and learn how to
design a curriculum unit that delivers all the standards through that project.

Smaller Learning Communities – an introductory workshop examining the best practices
informing and sustaining successful smaller learning communities.

New workshop under development: Want a Million Dollars for Your School? Go Get It!
Here’s How . . .

iKids – Technologies and Multimedia Deliver the Curriculum - learn more about our
digital natives (students) and how to connect the curriculum to their world. Learn how
students' brains absorb and process information in fundamentally new ways; about media
devices through which students filter information; how to incorporate these technologies
into the classroom; see how to exceed the standards using these technologies. Go back
to your school or classroom armed with a plan on specific strategies for incorporating
technologies and multimedia into your lessons.

Designing the 21 st Century Classroom – Advanced – a follow-up for those who attended
the first curriculum design workshop. In this one-day follow-up we will evaluate the
implementation of the curriculum framework designed during the first workshop, then
proceed to refine and define the details of the unit, or develop a new unit.


Participate in a live, real-time course from the comfort of your home, office or anywhere
on Earth as long as you have an Internet connection. Attendees may register for one of
our regional workshops offered in the virtual classroom, or we can develop a custom
virtual classroom for a district or campus.

Participants can raise their hand, ask questions via voice, email, discussion board or
whiteboard; they can share desktop control; view videos; utilize the Internet; and they
can collaborate with others on projects using the breakout rooms and whiteboards!

shifts in how we think about education; examining emerging new schools; and
developing 21st century curriculum and instruction.

Course Descriptions for Independent Study Coursework at University of Texas at

PHL 388        Digital Research - examining the role of hypermedia in conducting and
publishing research. In what ways do the roles, or interpretative messages, contained in
and delivered through various media impact educational research? An introductory
exploration into digital, or hypermedia, research. This was a basic level investigation
into digital research. What is digital research, how does it differ from other methods of
research, how does a digital, or virtual, researcher address issues such as validity,
reliability, and generalizability? This investigation led to topics such as: hypermedia as
a new medium for authoring, linking together of data, analysis and interpretation in the
same medium; video as a document; video data collection and analysis; conducting
research online; evaluating online resources; creating virtual communities in research;
multimedia technology as provider of new tools for historical research and
documentation; qualitative research methodologies and their philosophical
underpinnings ; the role of narrative in designing interactive multimedia systems;
cyberspace, virtual reality and critical theory.

PHL 388       Qualitative Research Design - an exhaustive effort to determine types of
research and their design methodologies for a philosophical, theoretical dissertation. As
this researcher’s interests and studies have been largely composed of the analysis and
critique of various theories, and it was determined that experimental research was
inappropriate for this dissertation as were the most commonly treated qualitative methods
such as ethnographic studies, case studies, action research, etc., an intensive search was
conducted to determine what other types of research methodology would be most
appropriate for this dissertation. This research not only involved an intensive search of
the materials available at the PCL at UT, but also involved a highly scrutinized
investigation of methodologies used in recent dissertations, and finally, an intensive
search via the Internet.
EDC 396V Herbert Marcuse, the Frankfurt School and Critical Theory – an in-depth
study of the life, work and theories of Herbert Marcuse, a member of the Frankfurt
School and founders of Critical Theory.

EDC 396V Integrating Theory into Practice: a Course for Student Teachers – designed
a course for preservice teachers which enabled future teachers to understand the
connections between theory and practice – the connections between what is done in the
classroom and why it is done. The course is designed so that student teachers learn in the
same way they are being taught to teach – they learn through actual experience, not by
listening or reading only. Project-based, this course prepares student teachers to enter
their first classroom prepared to teach and assess their students authentically. Theories
included are those of William Glasser, Lev Vygotsky, John Dewey, Howard Gardner,
Jerome Bruner, and others, related learning, curriculum design, instruction and

EDC 396T Democracy and Education - the Purpose of Schools and Critical Pedagogy
- the theories and ideals of John Dewey form a large part of the foundational ideals of
critical pedagogy. This course examines the writings of John Dewey as they pertain to
social justice, democracy in society, the democratic school and classroom, freedom,
consciousness and citizenship, social change, the nature of reality, of learning, of
growing, and the constantly evolving purpose of education as it relates to the wider

EDC 396T Creating the 21st Century Classroom - Interdisciplinary, Thematic and
Integrated Curriculum Design - examines the development and implementation of a
curriculum which is aligned with the needs of 21st century life. Several different thematic
and interdisciplinary units are designed which incorporate a variety social, cultural,
behavioral, psychological, instructional and learning theories. Here we find that there is
no real separation of curriculum, classroom management, instruction, learning, teaching
and assessment. Rather, the curriculum is designed on several levels simultaneously –
learning and curriculum theories, scheduling, arrangement of the learning environment,
selection of activities and materials, determination of learning outcomes, methods of
authentic assessment and matters pertaining to diversity and social issues.

PHL 388 Possibilities – a Digital Archive - this ongoing project is the development of
a web site which will serve as a significant portion of a doctoral dissertation. Constantly
evolving as a result of further research and learning on the part of the web site designer,
as well as a result of the interactions between the web site designer and visitors from
around the globe, this web site strives to 1.) contribute knowledge to the field of critical
pedagogy, and 2.) expand knowledge of critical pedagogy, its implementation and
possibilities, to educators.

PHL 388 Philosophical Foundations of Critical Pedagogy - an archaeology of the
sociohistorical and theoretical foundations of critical pedagogy, including Marcuse,
Hegel, Marx, Husserl, Heidegger, Lukacs, Korsch, the Frankfurt School, Horkheimer,
Freud and others.
PHL 388 Technology, the Media and Education in the New Millennium - a first look
at the rapid developments in technology and the media and how these developments
impact the field of education. Primarily researched through the Internet, and
supplemented by print texts, this study strives to establish a foundational knowledge in
the wide area demarcated by the intersections of technology, media, education and life in
the new century.

PHL 388 Intersections – Media and Education - an examination of cultural and media
studies which analyses the saturation of daily life by multiple forms of media, and what
this means for education. This saturation by the media extends from the global -
 transnational capitalism, nation-states, to the individual – and the processes of identity
formation and perceptions of reality. Examination of the phenomenon of media and
education is conducted from multiple perspectives such as media studies, cultural studies,
critical theory, feminist theory, critical race theory, postmodern theories and
communication theories.

PHL 388 Learning Theories and Critical Pedagogy - an examination of the
contributions of various learning theories to the development of critical pedagogy.
Includes Vygotsky, Bruner, Dewey, and Gardner.

PHL W388 Multiple Literacies and Critical Pedagogy - a study which investigates the
multiple literacies required for successful life in the 21 st century. Beginning with a
review of what literacies were considered as necessary in the 20th century, this study then
ferrets out a new set of literacies required as a result of drastic and rapid changes in
society due to technology, making a call for equally drastic changes in how schooling is
structured, and how curriculum is designed and delivered. New literacies required
include media literacies, financial literacy, ecoliteracy, cultural literacies, computer
literacy, and many more.

PHL W388 Media Literacies and Pedagogy - a relatively new arrival to the field of
education in the United States, media literacies have been an integral part of education in
Canada , New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom. This course involved an
investigation of the development and evolution of media literacy as an integral part of
curriculum and instruction for the 21 century, an exploration of topics and methods
utilized in more experienced programs in other countries, an exploration of the
beginnings of media literacy as part of education in the United States, discovering the
many facets of media literacy, and locating resources for educators who wish to pursue
media literacy, or the critique and use of multiple forms of media, as part of their

PHL W388 Paulo Freire and Multimedia - this course examines the writings and life of
the Brazilian educator, Paulo Freire. Considered by many as the “father of critical
pedagogy”, he has been criticized by some as being “anti-media”. This course examines
the theories of Freire and how they actually support multiple media literacies as a
necessary part of education today.
PHL W388 Panopticon Elementary – an autobiographical narrative. Adopting a
storytelling format as she relates her experiences, observations and feelings, the author
reflects upon and analyses her experiences as a teacher implementing critical pedagogy at
an elementary school. During this experience, the author is able to connect many of the
theories of Henry Giroux and Peter McLaren to real life in a particular school and
community. As a result of her studies in critical pedagogy, which are based upon the
works of Giroux and McLaren, the author is able to observe with heightened awareness
the injustices and inequities which operate within our educational and social systems that
are based on race, class, gender, ethnicity, religion, etc. These observations lead to new
understandings of critical pedagogy and ideas for its development and implementation.
