In 2004, Marvin Cadornigara moved from the Philippines to New York City to teach in the city’s public schools. He integrated the use of information and communication technologies in his middle school Science classes in order to achieve both new literacies and scientific inquiry skills. He also used social media as platform for lesson and classroom interactions. Students in his Science class investigated ecological ecosystems and biological microsystems and presented their finding using various communication and presentation technologies. They also gathered, analyzed, and synthesized authentic data from various cyber databases and presented them as projects in class. Since 2010, he has conducted 18 workshops on digital literacy and cyber-enabled learning at local, state, and national teacher workshops and conferences. In 2015, he was invited resource speaker during the first National Digital Educators’ Summit in Manila, Philippines.
