Scott Le Duc Is The Most Awesome Facilitator

Scott Le Duc and I have been comrades in arms since 2002, when we shared offices at Generation YES here in Olympia. Since then, we’ve schemed and dreamed, and facilitated together for days at a time across the US. A veteran teacher at Capital High School here in Olympia, I’ve visited his classroom and volunteered for the Olympia School District Career & Technical Education Advisory Committee that he staffs.
You can find a few different biographies of Scott floating around the Internet. One of my favorites
comes from his school website he shares with students:

Scott Le Duc’s Biography

  • 39 years old
  • Career goal is to work as an educator, teaching web publishing, photography and presentation skills
  • I am from Green Bay, Wisconsin
And that’s it.
The biography of Scott on China’s Wuhan University website where he is adjunct faculty is self-written. He says, 

“I have been a learner all of my life. I am an autodidact. So, I am in the right profession.

I currently work at Capital High School as a Career and Technical Educator focusing on art and technology instruction, Generation YES as a curriculum developer and trainer for GenerationYES.com, and Lesley, City and St. Martin’s and Universities as an adjunct faculty working in the Masters in Teaching program. I am also an adjunct faculty of computer science with the Wuhan University of Technology in Wuhan, China.

I conduct a workshop for the Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) titled Teaching 2.0. I showcase web 2.0 tools like screencasting, podcasting, wiki’s, blogs, RSS, Tagging, social bookmarks, online social networks, media tools (YouTube Video, Flickr Photo Gallery), great presentation techniques, brain research-based teaching philosophies and tools like Understanding by Design (UBD) mind mapping, project-based learning, total quality learning, arts integration, creativity, productivity and other relevant techniques to help teachers better connect with and instruct students.”

For CommonAction’s promotional materials, I rewrote Scott’s biography. 

Scott Le Duc, CommonAction Consultant, is a master teacher with more than a decade in the classroom at Capital High School in Olympia, Washington. As a career and technical   educator, Scott focuses on art and technology instruction, and also serves as adjunct faculty at Lesley University, City University, St. Martin’s University and Wuhan University of Technology. Scott’s specialties include a variety of technologies, as well as Multiple Intelligences, great presentation techniques, brain research-based teaching philosophies and tools, and other relevant techniques to help people connect with people. Living a life of “relevant reverie,” Scott enjoys effective education, powerful presentations, and collaborative communication, and believes in Gandhi’s message, “My life is my message.”

Scott is one of the most awesome facilitators I have ever meant. His dynamic energy, responsive style, and expert knowledge is refreshing, empowering, and engaging for audiences of all sizes. Working together, I have actually experienced Scott eclipsing my ability by meeting participants’ wants for technological expertise that I cannot. I constantly, consistently, and whole-heartedly commend Scott for his abilities and powers, and I’m completely excited to have him on board with the CommonAction team.
Scott’s links include his websites on Learning Mastery, I Do We Do You Do,  school webpages, and others. 
Check him out, and give a call to the CommonAction office by emailing info@commonaction.org or calling (360) 489-9680 to bring him to your school or organization for training and consulting!
