As an academic, I am a member of a number of professional associations that relate to technology, education, or both. I regularly serve as a proposal reviewer for the Association of Educational and Communication Technology, American Educational Research Association, and International Society for Technology in Education. I serve as a consulting editor for Educational Technology Research and Development. I also serve as an editorial review board member of the Journal of Computing in Higher Education, Journal of Research on Technology in Education, and the International Journal of Gaming and Computer-Mediated Simulations. I also serve as a reviewer for the British Journal of Educational Technology, Computers in Human Behavior, Computers & Education, and the Journal of Educational Computing Research.
I am presently the Chair of the Special Interest Group on Games and Simulations in International Society for Technology in Education. I also serve as the communications officer for the Special Interest Group on Instructional Technology in the American Educational Research Association. I also serve as the editor of the Florida Journal of Educational Research.
I have created and found a number of instructional resources that are useful for learning how to use technology, and I am always looking for resources online that are helpful. I am a major advocate of learning object repositories accessible to the public. Knowledge should be open to anyone that wants to learn.
If you are interested in software downloads, you might want to look at my selection of downloads. Most of the downloads are free and range in use from SSH software to useful development tools. I try to only include comprehensive software packages because I don’t like installing random software tools that are limited in scope.
I have also compiled a list of publication venues in the area of educational technology and computing and information-centric education journals. Feel free to take a look if you are interested in publishing or simply looking for research information. I have not put any information that rates the impact factor scores or academic prestige of the venues.
