Sylvia Stipich is ESL/EFL/ELL educator with over a decade of teaching experience, a life-long Rhode Islander and technology nerd and coach. In 1996, she wrote my first webpage on AOL Pages. Today her tech interests have progressed beyond web dev to topics like blended learning, green screen videos, and 3D Printing. She is technology coach for the Rhode Island Adult Education Professional Development Center, working with ABE agencies around the state.
Sylvia has had the opportunity to travel and teach around the world: to South Korea, the Czech Republic, Brazil, Croatia, and also working in London, UK. Having taught over fifty different nationalities, she experienced the barriers that culture and language impose on learners. From international experience, she found that instructional technology can help transcend cultural and linguistic barriers to communication and learning and is available to help other teachers incorporate technology into classroom practice.
