San Francisco
Dr. Ricardo Omar Elizalde, Sr. honed his craft of teaching for more than 20 years in the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD). A lifelong learner, Ricardo started to experiment with multimedia projects early in his teaching career as an English and English learner teacher. From puppet shows to film festivals, Ricardo enjoyed creating a classroom community of storytellers and media-makers. He started exploring portfolios as a way to create a home for these multimedia explorations. Currently he works as a teacher on special assignment in SFUSD trying to weave content and technology into powerful learning environments. He is a doctor of education in learning technologies. His dissertation blends language learning with multimedia making and sharing across digital platforms. This is his second year as a KQED Media Literacy Innovator.
