I have been passionate about digital equity issues within the state of Florida since I was an undergraduate student. This most recent article looks at the technology literacy of middle school students in the state of Florida. Many thanks to my dear co-authors: Kara Dawson, Feng Liu, and Ann Barron. Here is the citation:

Over the past couple years, I have had the pleasure of working with my dear colleague and friend Dr. Grandon Gill as an external evaluator on his National Science Foundation grant. This grant program focused on integrating open, authentic case studies in information systems education. The work culminated in this article published in the Journal of Information Technology Education. Here is the citation:

Several years ago, I suggested that we needed more teaching cases that could be used in our classroom instruction in the field of educational technology. As a consequence, I decided to edit a case book on the topic. My dear colleague Dr. Swapna Kumar and myself edited this case book. IGI was the publisher. The cases are now available online for use. The case book has 21 unique contributions from authors across the globe. Here is the citation:

A paper I worked on with graduate students (and my colleagues Dr Dawson and Dr Liu) at the University of Florida was recently published by Computers in the Schools. This paper examined student digital artifacts from a funded grant program within the state of Florida. Here is the citation:

My article with my dear colleague Dr. Heidi Higgins was recently published by the Journal of Technology Integration in the Classroom. This article investigated the effect of data visualization exercises on performance and attitudes. Here is the citation:

My article with my colleague Dr. Chris Sessums and current student Margeaux Johnson was recently published by Educational Technology. This article focused on examining journal prestige factors in the field of educational technology and factors influencing publication choice. Here is the citation:

My path analysis article with my dear colleagues Dr. Kara Dawson and Dr. Cathy Cavanaugh was recently published by the Journal of Educational Computing Research. This article dates back to when I first started the EETT work in Florida. Here is the citation:

This book chapter represents several years of work on the design and development of ARTI. This work dates back to when I was working at the University of North Florida. Dr. Dawson was the designer and I was the developer. This was as fun project. Here is the citation:

My book review with Nate Poling, Margeaux Johnson, and Chris Frey was recently published by the International Journal of Gaming and Computer-Mediated Simulations. This book review examined Atsusi Hirumi’s book titled Playing games in school: Video games and simulations for primary and secondary education. Here is the citation:
