Gene Carboni

I am the Business/Technology Chair at Father Judge High School for Boys in Philadelphia, PA. He attended St. Joseph's University Evening College and started teaching in Adult Education in 1984. My wife of 38 years, Elaine teaches 8th Grade ELA and our son, Geno is a High School, Social Studies teacher.

My PLP (Powerful Learning Practice) experience started in 2008 as Team Leader for my school's team. Since that time I have been a PLP Fellow and a Connected Coach. I am active in various online educational communities, as well as an avid Twitter user (@gcarboni) who has a passion for sharing educational resources to facilitate change. I am in my second year as a member of The University of Pennsylvania's Distributed Leadership team and serves on his school's Technology Vision team. Aside from teaching I dedicate my time to developing in-house staff development for 60+ teachers, administrators, and support staff. I have presented at various diocesan Technology In-services hosted by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and was named a Diocesan Technology Star in 2009. My site, "Play to Learn & Learn to Share" focuses on helping educators embrace change, engage their students with new technologies making them ready to enter the 21st Century Work Force.
