RushtonHurley – Founder & Executive Director, Next Vista for Learning Possibilities with Digital Media: tools and pedagogy related to digital media
Bio: Rushton Hurley is the founder and executive director of Next Vista for Learning, which houses a free library of videos by and for teachers and students at NextVista.org. His graduate research at Stanford University included using speech recognition technology with beginning students of Japanese in computer-based role-playing scenarios for developing language skills. In the 1990s his work with teenagers at a high school in California led him to begin using internet and video technologies to make learning more active, helping him reach students who had struggled under more traditional approaches.
In 2005, Rushton began speaking at conferences to help teachers working to discover what digital media and other technologies could do for their classes. In the last eight years, Rushton has trained teachers and other professionals in North America, Europe, and Asia, presenting at regional and national conferences. His fun and thoughtful talks center on the connection between engaging learning and useful, affordable technology, as well as professional perspectives in a changing world.
