I'm Glenn, and my research work is driven by a desire to understand multicultural education and the role of technology in supporting pedagogy equity... Implementing multicultural education pedagogy in shifting the balance to learners.
I have been a teacher for 16 years, teaching students at all levels in learning and innovation. My research activity is concerned with impact and needs to have a practical relevance in real organisational learning environments. The words below have increasingly shaped my research directions and movements.
“We do not ask you to march by our side. Although, as citizens, you are free and welcome to do so. Rather, we ask you to focus on the fresh social issues of our day. To move from observing operant learning …. to the test tubes of Watts, Harlem, Selma, and Bogalusa. We ask you to make society’s problems your laboratory. We ask you to translate your data into direction-direction for action.”
Martin Luther King Jr 1966
My research investigations focus on ‘technology led innovation management’ in the context of: (1) multicultural education and ICT and (2) e-learning 2.0 and collaborative social networks. My most recent books are Creative Destruction and Black Day to Freedom.
I launched the BeyondLabels initiative 2002, focused on multicultural education and technology, and this has been taken forward through a wide range of projects including: BeyondLabels Conference 2003, workshops, race equality training and experimental digital theatre education. It is driven by a desire to intervene through multicultural education pedagogical style and harnessing technology in supporting pedagogy equity........
