I worked for Wright State University for 13 years and retired with the honor of being awarded professor emeritus status. My primary responsibilities were to the Department of Leadership Studies in the Educational Technology Masters Degree program. Before WSU I taught at the University of Dayton. I'll always be a Flyer. But I retired from UD and moved across town to WSU.
Wright State University offered two programs leading to State of Ohio educational license for individuals wishing to work with technology in schools. Approximately 1 year after my retirement in December of 2013 the Technology in Education program dropped the State of Ohio endorsement. For archival purposes, you can check out Old Educational Technology program here. Information about the current Masters program in Technology can be seen here, Master of Education in Educational Technology. This program became yoked with the Instructional Design for Online Learning.
I can be reached most easily through email or through Facebook messaging.

Dr. Carlsen's Travels Since Retirement
My wife Nancy and I have traveled quite a bit in 2014 and 2015. Since Nancy volunteers to work with high math achieving students in the Centerville City Schools and we have 3 grand kiddos nearby we can't be gone too long. Most of the time we travel together. We are working to make all kiddo birthdays. Soccer, basketball, softball, and baseball games are important but we miss a few of these. Since two are now playing select sports it means many short fun trips.
In January 2014 we searched for whales in Hawaii and explored Maui.
On our return I went to FETC in Florida for a week. Then I drove home, dropped Winnie's luggage off, and picked up Nancy for three more weeks in Florida.
In June and July we spend almost three weeks in northern Germany. Thanks to Thomas Winkler for everything. In the fall, Nancy and I visited Georgia, Virginia Beach, Williamsburg and Asheville. In 2015 we spent 3 weeks in Great Britain and I travelled to Texas to meet my amazing family. In 2016 we spent 3 weeks in Florida, 2 weeks in St. Martin and I'm finishing up 2-weeks in Ireland.

Areas of Emphasis
1. Mobile and ubiquitous technologies.
2. Cloud Computing services and applications.
3. Appification of the Internet. – small simple purpose Internet tools.
4. I'm very interested in comparisons between the 3 "Red Queens" (Apple, Google/Android and Microsoft)
Each day I try to post content that interests me and that I figure might interest a few friends who are farther away than I like. It is a way for me to stay connected. I have a few friends from my high school days and even some former students from when I taught 5th and 6th graders in Crestwood, Illinois. I do like Facebook. Still, i believe that 70% of what's posted there is questionable and a growing number of postings are hateful or mean spirited. Still, i love it because it connects me.
