Every renovation project requires a few experts who have done a particular project before, have specific expertise or have skills needed for the renovations. Here are my 'resident experts'. These are the thinkers or researchers I returned to many times during this renovation project. They have shaped the renewal of my concepts about education, technology and teaching. Embedded into the framework of my teaching and learning are the theories and ideas of J. Piaget and L. Vygotsky.

There are many other experts in the field of education, technology, teaching and learning that have influenced and added to my renovations. Their impact and ideas are integrated within the deeper reflections for each of the MET courses found in THE WORK section of this portfolio. Some of these additional 'resident experts' include John Dewey, Seymour Papert, Howard Gardner, Sherry Turkle, Jay Bolter, Terry Anderson, Marlene Scardamalia, A.W. Bates & G. Poole, and A. Chickering & Z. Gamson.
