“Victor, we are building a new school and I want you to integrate good design with technology.”
Victor Boulanger , the the director of Learning Design at Kaohsiung American School in Taiwan heard those words (or something like that) from his school director upon arriving in Taiwan for his new job. While most people might turn and run, Victor charged directly into the project and created space(s) where the power of technology meets the strengths of good design.

As Victor points out during our conversation, he did not do it alone. With help from 21st Century Learning Consultants Justin Hardman and Sunil Talwar and technology leaders at his own school, a project was transformed into a finished project worthy of a visit the next time you are in Taiwan.
