Barbara is a Creative Learning Strategist, co-founder of Personalize Learning, LLC and co-author of Make Learning Personal with Kathleen McClaskey. They both believe that anyone at any age can learn. Barbara has worked with schools, districts, individuals, businesses, and non-profit agencies around the world. Barbara is also founder/owner of My eCoach and Computer Strategies, LLC.
Barbara is a teacher, writer, change agent, risk-taker, instructional designer, connector, and visionary. Whenever anyone told Barbara she couldn’t do something, she took it more like a challenge. Barbara knows that teachers need support with the transformation of teaching and learning to personalizing learning. New and veteran teachers are overwhelmed with day-to-day tasks plus being asked to teach and integrate technology. The big question even today is “how do you fit everything in that is expected of you and meet the needs of all students?” The focus now is to personalize learning so learners take ownership of their learning.
Barbara works tirelessly to find and research new tools and methods that help educators and personalize learning. Now with multiple opportunities to network using social media and join various online communities, teachers and learners are confused. Barbara makes it her job to determine what is authentic, valid, cost-effective, safe, user-friendly, and relevant for her clients. She is relentlessly researching with Kathleen how to personalize learning so all learners follow their passion so they discover their purpose.
