Honorary Tech Ninja
Name: A.J. Julinai
Job Title: K-12 Technology Staff Developer
Years in Education: 7
Why do you make an excellent "Tech Ninja"?
My sensei once taught me that all ninjas must master the art of humility. I still have a tough time with that one. I run a 1:1 laptop initiative, speak at various conferences, founded EducationIsMyLife.com, and also work as an ISTE Faculty and Instructional Consultant.
What are some of your favorite Web 2.0 tools, and why?
I enjoy Infuse Learning (its like Socrative), Sophia (for flipping those classes), Prezi (for rocking out a black-belt presentation) and Draft (best way for students to collaborate while writing IMHO). There are many others but I'm using those right now so they are on my mind. I probably need to go meditate right now and think of some others.
Why is technology important in education?
I believe that education is the bridge out of poverty and can lead to a better life. But technology is the fuel that will get our students across that bridge.
I met Todd at ISTE 2013 and saw his Ninja aura from 100 yards away. His mystical ways led me to visit this site and learn of the power behind his craft.
