Welcome to my blog! I am John “Zed” Zurovchak – aka The Zedman. I picked up the nickname during a one-year student sojourn in Ireland back in 1985. Not too many people enjoyed saying my full last name, so I quickly became John Zed and then simply Zed…and it has stuck ever since.
I have a PhD in Political Science and I enjoy teaching on-line as well as working as an instructional designer and social media evangelist. I am hoping that this blog will provide some valuable commentary on work literacy in today’s web2.0 world. I am particularly interested in helping employees take control of their biggest asset – their intellectual capital – through the creation of Personal Learning Environments (PLEs). I am also interested in the emerging field of digital storytelling and visual thinking.
