My name is Dean, and I was born in Baltimore, MD. I am interested in music and technology, specifically new forms of media. I am taking this class to be exposed to new forms of disruptive technologies, as technologies sometimes change the way people interact with the world and the web, which interests me! I am comfortable with technology, which I like to seek out and manipulate to find new ways to combine technologies or forms to create new forms (or to achieve some desired end (or objective)).
I was just recently accepted into the Learning, Design, and Technology master’s program at University Park campus. I graduated from Penn State in 2004 with undergrad degrees in Philosophy and Information, Sciences, and Technology. Since that time I’ve been working at Penn State in the area of multimedia development. Currently, I manage the Learning Design multimedia department for World Campus course development.
I’m looking forward to working with all of you to develop a more articulate understanding of how to effectively disrupt online learning spaces.
