I’m a futurist, researcher, writer, speaker, consultant, and teacher, working in the field of how technology transforms education.

Bryan_IvanSome of the areas I focus on include social media, digital storytelling, mobile devices, gaming, pedagogy, scholarly communication, forecasting, and the future of academia.

In the past I’ve worked in a used bookstore, been an English professor, and helped build a national nonprofit organization, the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education (NITLE), where I was senior fellow.  Now I write full time and run a consulting firm.

On that English lit theme, I’ve been researching and teaching Gothic literature for some time.  Some publications include articles on DraculaThe Blair Witch Project, and the cybergothic idea. My Infocult blog covers various Gothic issues.

    Hi Bryan,

    I attended your session yesterday at EDUCAUSE and have a follow up question. Do you know of any tools/measures for assessing digital literacy that you can recommend?

    Thanks! Naomi Boyer

    I don’t know if this one qualifies for your litany – or if I may have missed it. A friend who lives in Kearney, where we started our careers together decades ago, sent it along to me.

    I appreciate the good work you do.
