    Brief Biography

    Truc (pronounced like "truck") conducts research in leveraging learning technologies for maximum influence and the World Wide Web's impact on teaching and learning. She has two primary areas of research specialty: online learning communities for teachers and Internet safety issues for schools and families. She grounds her work in organizational change theory, inquiry science, communities of practice, TPACK, and most recently improvement science. She is fascinated by Clark and Kozma's debates on the "media effects" in learning.
