When it comes to the personal pursuit and acquisition of knowledge, through formal or informal means of education, my philosophy is pragmatic yet modestly idealistic. To me, education is a fundamental prerequisite toward sensibility, inspiration, and enlightenment. As educated individuals, I am of strong opinion that we are better able to maintain a level of intellectual acuity and social responsibility that brings about many advantages to ourselves and the rest of society.
Within the broad scope of academia, I consider myself a digital pluralist. The utilization of digital technology as a teaching device within the classroom setting, in my opinion, is primarily geared to improve pedagogic efficiency and instructional proficiency. While technology has many "communal" uses within the wide array of social mediums that comprise our global community, as an educational tool, I have a much greater sense of appreciation for its intrapersonal and introspective qualities that help to foster a more heuristic and resolute form of cognitive learning and thinking.
