Scott Le Duc is the Educational Ninja!
Scott presents workshops to educators with an emphasis on andragogy, the study of adult learning. He bases his approach on the proverb, “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”
Imagine a ninja-like educator armed with knowledge and resources appearing when the student is ready to learn. This scenario is any of Scott’s workshops. Participants bring real world problems to be solved collaboratively in a hands-on interactive atmosphere.
He is an autodidact. He loves learning and models life-long learning strategies, especially with social media tools.
He has conducted workshops for the Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), the Olympia and Bethel School Districts and many other school districts around the country and in China.
His workshops showcase web 2.0 tools including screencasting, podcasting, wiki’s, blogs, RSS, Tagging, social bookmarks, online social networks, media tools (YouTube, Flickr, SlideShare, etc.), great presentation techniques, brain research-based teaching philosophies and tools like differentiated instruction, Understanding by Design (UBD), concept (mind) mapping, project-based learning, total quality learning, arts integration, creativity, productivity and other relevant techniques to help teachers better connect with and instruct students.
Scott has a Masters in Education with an emphasis in Arts Integration from Lesley University. He teaches at Capital High School, as a Career and Technical Educator focusing on art, technology and social media instruction, and with Lesley, City and St. Martin’s Universities as an adjunct faculty working in the Masters in Teaching program.
