Like Mark Twain, I believes the ancients stole all our good ideas; and I want to get them back.

 

Here’s a short bio:

Brad Ovenell-Carter has spent more than 15 years exploring the impact of technology on education. His adventures include leading an international student body and faculty around the world with an iPhone, iPad and Macbook Pro. An Apple Distinguished Educator, a Google Certified Innovator and advisory board member for SXSWEdu, he has presented at Apple Education Leadership Institutes, Apple Distinguished Educator Institutes, Alan November’s Building Learning Communities, Google Apps for Education Summits, iOS Summits and SXSWedu. He has also led professional development workshops at the Canadian Accredited Independent Schools, Independent Schools Association of British Columbia as well as in individual schools in Canada, the United States and Europe. If there’s one thing he’s learned in all this, it’s that the essence of technology has nothing at all to do with anything technological.

Brad currently works as the Director of Centre for Innovation at Mulgrave School, an independent, coed pre-K12 International Baccalaureate School in Vancouver, BC.
