Education & Technology

Owen Ferguson is captivated with curricula: the official written document, covert curriculum, social curriculum and absent curriculum as each pertains to critical theory and social reconstruction. As a former K-12 teacher, he is especially interested in inclusive leadership as a means to engage all students in their pursuit of meaningful opportunities in life, and the uses of technology in formal and informal learning practices. His areas of study and expertise include the evolution of curricula design and how assessment practices influence curriculum design and delivery through instruction methods.
