My professional website and portfolio

Welcome. This website is all about me, Matthew Schmidt. Some folks call me Matthew, but I prefer Matt. That banner picture above? I snapped that just down the street from my house when I was living in Hawaii.

Who am I? Instead of just copy and pasting some boring boilerplate, I thought I'd provide a few social media sites so you can see who I am as reflected there.

To summarize, I'm an assistant professor in the field of educational technology who is excited to be working on forward-thinking projects that embody learning theory using technological means so as to meaningfully impact education. I am interested in openness, open educational resources, and free/open source software in education. Through application of openness in my teaching and research, I endeavor to meaningfully impact learning by reducing barriers to learning, encouraging manipulation of teaching and learning materials to meet the needs of diverse learners, and promoting learning artifacts as a freely available common good.
