My Students

I teach in a progressive, project based high school in San Diego. My students match the demographic of San Diego County. Students at High Tech High are selected via a zip-code based lottery system. Merit is not a distinguisher for admission to the school. Students simply have to show a desire to come.

My students are amazing people!

I am astounded at their thoughtful curiosity in the work they do. Over the past three years, students in my classes have produced award winning films, a working paraglider, high level astrophotography, an experimental, amateur rocket, and printed photographs that have sold. Along the way they have worked with me in consulting other teachers and schools on progressive pedagogies. I'm extremely excited to see what they produce in 2017 - 2018.

My Project

My students will be working on producing virtual field trips this semester. Right now we are working with one other school network who plans to use these field trips for their online students. We also hope to release these VR experiences out to the general public and begin to learn how a classroom might add to the growing body of virtual media that exists on the web. At present, we are using Google Maps and video from cell phones and DSLRs to try and get the best media possible. A 360 camera would allow us to exponentially improve what we are capable of doing. Our class is extremely excited about the possibilities of this work!
