About Quentin D’Souza

Quentin D’Souza has long been on the cutting edge of educational technology. For years Quentin has taken a leading role in a number of online projects that have focused on providing teachers with classroom resources, and opportunities for professional development.? – Peter Aguiar – Point and Click Academic Technology News

After spending a few years in the trenches as an elementary school teacher I recently changed positions to Elementary QuentinResource Teacher for Academic Communication and Information Technology at the Toronto Catholic District School Board. It basically means I’m a computer geek.

In the classroom, I liked to consider myself an early implementer of the latest that technology had to offer me. A few examples are collaborative projects, online reporting, asynchronous discussions, elearning using both a blended and fully online model, and webquests.

Some of my past experiences with web design, cgi script installation as well as coding in html, actionscript, javascript, and php give me technical knowledge.

My academic experience includes a Masters in Education from York University and CompTIA A+ certification. I was also nominated for The Learning Partnerships Technology Innovation Award in 2004.

    [IMG circle square triangle] Following the great Internet Safety debate, I ran acrossQuentin D’Souza’s post regarding the The Three B’s. D’Souza responds to school board and administrative reactions to social networking, weblogs, and other areas where students publish online: Ban, Block, and Bury. What I find helpful is D’Souza’s response to this
