I am a secondary language arts teacher/learner currently on an extended leave from the classroom. I recently completed a master’s degree program in instructional technology at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. I am also raising two beautiful young children.

I am most passionate about the field of media education, especially understanding how adolescents use media outside the confines of the traditional classroom. How might educators tap into this in ways that add relevance and rigor to our course content and, at the same time, teach young people to engage more critically and responsibly with all forms of new and electronic media?

I am also interested in understanding how centralized systems of authority (schools) are adapting (or, failing to adapt) their policies and practices to accommodate the current explosion in web-based publishing, networking, and file sharing.

I welcome opportunities to connect with fellow teacher/learners. You may contact me at jennifer dot lubke at gmail dot com or leave a reply below.

Think on this:

"What if we just ignored the status of students in other countries? That wouldn’t be especially neighborly, but at least we wouldn’t be viewing the gains of children in other lands as a troubling development."

Alfie Kohn

"When I hear people say it's our job to create the 21st century workforce, it scares the hell out of me. Our job is to create 21st-century citizens. We need workers, yes, but we also need scholars, activists, parents -- compassionate, engaged people."

Chris Lehmann
