My Philosophy

Being part of a "community of learners" where teachers, administrators, students, anyone can collaborate and share and learn from each other. I created My eCoach to harness the power of the Internet to make a learning community where everyone shares ideas and resources and helps each other so they do not reinvent the wheel over and over again. My focus has been on "Making Learning Personal" to empower learners to develop agency. Now it's going deeper with defining your WHY.

My Community

The San Francisco Bay Area is a very diverse community with a exciting mixture of ethnic groups, delicious eateries, and lots of things to do. We have the best weather and climate. My eCoach offers anyone an online community where learning and sharing can happen at anytime from anywhere.

My Environment

The My eCoach environment changes often where groups start their own communities for their school, district, online courses, church groups, cancer support groups, book clubs, movie clubs, and almost anything.

My Roles and Responsibilities

I write, present, keynote, facilitate workshops, design new materials, and coach individuals and groups to help Define Your WHY.. I blog on my website, Rethinking Learning and host my podcast, Conversations on Learning. I also co-host the #rethink_learning Twitter chat every other Monday 4p PT, 7p ET.
