Tom Driscoll

Tom’s career in education began by teaching high school social studies for eight years in Connecticut. While teaching, he explored emerging instructional design models through his graduate research at Columbia University. As he applied the Flipped Classroom approach, Tom began writing and speaking nationally about his practical experiences teaching and iterating blended learning models. During this time, Tom authored chapters for several instructional technology books, including the ISTE publication “Flipped Learning: Gateway to Student Engagement.” He has also contributed to multiple articles on media outlets such as EdSurge, EdTech Digest, CUE Blog, and the New York Times. In 2015, Tom transitioned to a new role as Director of Educational Technology for the Bristol Warren Regional School District in Rhode Island. There, Tom helps lead several key aspects of the district’s digital learning transformation, including the 30+ member Digital Learning Team and district-wide Future Ready Learning initiative.

As an instructor, Tom has extensive experience working with educators across all grade levels and content areas. Topics of particular interest and expertise include: effective application of blended learning models, amplifying student voice, making thinking visible, gamification & game-based learning, and digital leadership. As an authorized Google for Education Trainer, Tom has experience helping educators leverage Google Apps to amplify effective teaching strategies and improve student learning. Tom also has experience helping school leaders develop strategic plans and action steps that leverage technology to personalize instruction and promote deeper learning for all students.

Tom holds a Master’s Degree in Computing in Education from Teachers’ College, Columbia University. Tom also holds a Bachelor’s Degree in History from Vassar College, where he was a Captain of their NCAA basketball team.
