I have been getting a lot of requests asking if I will make a visit to your school, organization, or conference.  While I work in a school district conducting professional development for technology integration, transformation, one to one, and PBL , I also have limited time to work with other districts and present at conferences. I feel my role as a current practitioner with 35 years of educational experience  along with recent advanced degree work at Johns Hopkins University has been valuable to those I work with. I have also consulted for Discovery Education, Buck Institute, ISTE, Alan November Learning, PBS, and am a tech adviser for Tech and Learning Magazine.

I am excited about any way I can assist you in providing professional development and presentations. I have had the opportunity to network and train thousands of educators across the country on topics that include PBL, 21st Century Learning, STEM, Digital Curriculum, One to One, and Educational Transformation. You can see past topic below along with over 150 appearances, presentations, and workshops  I have been involved with across the country. Please note that it is helpful to plan in advance to guarantee needed dates. I  invite your inquiry at: mjgormans@gmail.com.

One response to “Booking Info

  1. Smart kits east Africa ,is a Kenyan registered entity , whose goal is
    to research, develop, acquire and provide practical ,creative products
    via a curriculum that encapsulate S.T.E.M education in East Africa ;
    preparing our children to be sufficiently adept and effective citizens
    ,able to function and contribute to an increasingly technology driven
    world .
    Our schools and the different curriculum are still stuck in the
    archetypal approach where we “teach about science”, rather than to
    “learn to be scientist “. Hence, science is arduous and excruciating.
    Science and math are presented as collection of fusty facts, formulae,
    or principles; things students must remember faithfully and
    regurgitate mindlessly to pass examinations.

    As Smart Kits (ea.) Science is a way of thinking, understanding and
    representing our world, and the earlier we start inculcating this
    culture the better we prepare our children for the future.

    STEM isn’t just for tomorrow’s scientist and engineers .Innovation
    and technology has led to demand for STEM competencies beyond
    traditional STEM occupations. The creativity, practical and critical
    thinking skills that come with a foundation in Stem are in high demand
    for many jobs across our nation, but as a 300 million + economy we are
    still lagging behind in developing man power in this areas

    We are seeking partnership with your organization that will enable us
    to correct this situation in the following ways.
    1. We are looking to develop a S.T.E.M curriculum that will be infused
    with the existing 8 – 4 -4 system that will target 8-17 yr olds that’s
    primary (elementary) and High school.
    2. Have some of your leading minds in STEM curriculum flying over to
    train teachers.
    3. Guide in acquiring products or support materials that would
    accelerate learning in schools and at home for kids.

    Africa is the future and this is evident with the number of
    multinationals setting up in Kenya, I believe a partnership between
    will be mutually beneficial, will looking forward to a favorable
    response .
