ABOUT ME

I have been an educator for 14 years, helping faculty, administrative staff, and students to support teaching and learning. I’m currently working at American Robert College of Istanbul as Educational Technology Coordinator. I graduated from Middle East Technical University (METU) with a B.S. and M.S. degree in Computer Education and Instructional Technology in Turkey. I am a member of the core team that initiated the 1:1 Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program at Robert College, one of the first schools in Turkey to implement the student laptop/tablet program. I'm specialized in technology integration into curriculum, professional development and leadership programs for teachers, 1:1 laptop/tablet initiatives and e-learning.
