Education is Bonnie's passion. Her favorite quote: “If you think education is expensive, just try ignorance.”

Being retired from the classroom, she is enjoying her continuing work with Connecting Link students and is able to focus completely on their needs. The opportunity to learn and grow with students each day is fulfilling. She still enjoys that “light bulb” moment with learners.

Working with TCL for over 20 years as a site-based instructor, an online instructor and a course writer demonstrates her desire to make sure that the excellence of Connecting Link courses shines. As a classroom teacher educating grades K-5 and a Technology Integration Coordinator for the school district which included educating educators, students (K-12) and parents she has a wide variety of teaching experiences. In her final classroom years she enjoyed teaching in a self-contained gifted/talented classroom.

In 1978 she received her first degree from Northern Arizona University, in Flagstaff, AZ and in 1988 received a Master of Science in Education from Indiana University. A Gifted/Talented Endorsement was earned in 2005.

She enjoys teaching, traveling, sailing, gardening, reading, cooking and spending time with her family.

This course will provide K–16 educators the opportunity to understand and use global collaborative web technologies to impact learning and teaching. Teachers will use these technologies to design and develop relevant learning experiences across curriculums. Online collaboration; creating and publishing text, images, audio and video to the Web; management of multiple streams of information; social networking; and the practical use of other Web 2.0/3.0 tools will be critiqued, analyzed, and evaluated for classroom uses. This course will allow for examination of the ethics, safety, and security involved with the use of these technologies.
