SUMMARY
Hello world! My name is David Woo and I am a research student in the Faculty of Education at the University of Hong Kong. I am in the information technology division of the Faculty, and am studying how pedagogical technologists influence schools¶ ways of working with and through technology. Prior to this, I was a teacher. I taught English, history and computer studies in several secondary schools in Hong Kong. I also taught English for two years at the City University of Hong Kong. In several of these schools, I was also given IT coordination duties, among other ancillary duties. These days, my research interests include ecological perspectives of school change, and comparing school sectors in Hong Kong. CAREER HIGHLIGHTS Teaching Having taught at several Hong Kong secondary schools and one university, I have a wide range of teaching experience. I have taught English language, world history and computer studies, and in addition, I am qualified to teach primary school curriculum, and social studies. My teacher feedback questionnaire results from the City University of Hong Kong, where student feedback was solicited, are excellent. My teaching experience includes:
y y y y y The City University of Hong Kong (http://www.cityu.edu.hk) (2008-2010) Methodist College (http://www.mckln.edu.hk) (2006-2008) Sha Tin Methodist College (http://www.stmc.edu.hk) (2005-2006) YMCA of Hong Kong Christian College (http://www.ymcachristiancollege.edu.hk) (2004-2005) QESOSA Secondary School (http://www.ss.qesosa.edu.hk/) (2003-2004)

Information Technology (IT) Coordination: I was an IT coordinator at both the secondary school and the tertiary school levels in Hong Kong. My responsibilities included identifying areas where teaching and learning could be enhanced by IT, liaising with IT technicians and providers, and improving existing IT provision. I have also led several professional development workshops for colleagues and continue to develop my IT use in my teaching and research. Social Media and Rapid e-Learning: I have a significant personal and professional online presence. I am a proficient user of social networking, video, photo, livestreaming, screencasting, micro- and macro-blogging, wiki, social bookmarking and scheduling websites, among others. I have assisted colleagues, friends and strangers in familiarizing themselves with these technologies. A sample of my work includes:
y y Social media mashups at Storify: http://storify.com/wootang01 Rapid e-learning videos on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL1F00483C288F41D0 (HKU) http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2F079E602D40059F (CityU)

Curriculum Development and Language Across Curriculum I have developed curricula and materials whose topics and levels of difficulty are group-specific and groupappropriate with excellent reliability and superb predictive validity. These include:
University-level writing and independent learning modules for business students University-level writing papers for IELTS candidates Self-access training packages for markers of IELTS writing and speaking papers Secondary school content area modules in computer literacy and history
