My name is Scott Le Duc. I have been a learner all of my life. I am an autodidact. So, I am in the right profession.
I am a National Board Certified educator currently work at Capital High School teaching International Baccalaureate (IB) and Career and Technical Education (CTE) classes focusing on arts and technology instruction, specifically music, film and game design. I have worked as an adjunct faculty at Lesley University, City University of Seattle, St. Martin’s University, and Wuhan University of Technology in Hubei Province, China.

What I Do
I help teachers and students develop contextual learning based on student agency. What? I help teachers and students focus on the end in mind. What? Think problem-based learning. What? Try this … ask yourself, ‘what problem(s) are we trying to solve?’ Start with that first, then build the learning experience. Lastly, students and teachers share power in developing and maintaining the learning experience.
I help students develop film, music, game design storytelling through the exploration of great presentation techniques, brain research-based teaching philosophies, and tools like Understanding by Design (UBD), mind mapping, project-based learning, total quality learning (TQL), arts integration, creativity on demand, productivity (GTD), and other relevant techniques to help teachers better connect with and instruct students.
I showcase web tools and techniques like screencasting, podcasting, wiki’s, blogs, RSS, tagging, social bookmarks, online social networks. I support the use of media tools like YouTube, Soundtrap, Soundcloud, Flickr, VoiceThread, and others.

This site is for others like myself that revel in relevant reverie, enjoy effective education, participate in powerful presentations, and create collaborative communication. Most of all, for people who love alliteration and what they do and do what they love.
