I am a former middle and high school English teacher and Technology Integration Specialist and Instructional Coach who now works with teachers as Innovation Coordinator for Instructional Technology, Information, and Library Media  in the Parkway School District and an adjunct professor of educational technology for Missouri Baptist University. As a speaker, writer and professional developer, I focus on systemic and sustainable integration of technology into classrooms at all grade levels. I hold a Master of Science in Instructional Technology and a Certificate of Online Learning from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, and a Bachelor of Science in English from Culver-Stockton College. I am Co-President of Educational Technology Association of Greater St. Louis, a Google Certified Innovator and DEN Star Educator, a past member of the NCTE Executive Committee, and author of the ISTE books, From Inspiration to Red Carpet and Digital Reading: What’s essential in grades 3-8.

Many of my past presentations as well as documents, publications and videos can be found on this site. View my full resume here.


This blog was created as a way to brainstorm and discuss teaching ideas, specifically those involving using technology in the classroom, and ways to incorporate student ideas into content. Want to know more about me? Send me an e-mail.

  2. My school is going one to one with Google based tablets. I find your How To very helpful and have shared it with my teachers.

  3. Hi Mr. Bass,
    Your instructions for creating an Email Script for a Google form were perfect. People pay big bucks for observation apps that will send emails.

    Any chance you or someone else has come up with a script for individual rows? Would love to email my teachers as I observe them.

    Thank you for your blog. Fantastic!
