The Cultured Web
Marcia J. Mayper, has been an educator forever! She taught English in the NYC public schools on the Lower Eastside of Manhattan for many years. While living in Paris, France and Rome, Italy for two years, she translated and taught English to executives in Paris, France, and Rome, Italy. Her computer experience began when Marcia marketed computers for Philips Information Systems, then for Data General. In 1988 Marcia started her own business, Innovative Computing, teaching people how to use computers. Her students have ranged in age from 3 to 90+; and her clients have been individuals needing computer skills for their work or school. Marcia’s clients include corporations as well as not for profits: Carnegie Hall, Goldman Sachs, American International Group, Japan Air Lines, Associated Actors and Artistes of America, Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind, NYU/Stern School and many more. At the advent of the Internet Marcia was featured in Best Bets of the New York Magazine. Marcia attended a conference, Museums and the Web and returned for many more conferences in the USA and in Europe. This sparked her passion to learn, explore and teach. Museums and cultural venues produce phenomenal content on the web, but too often it is difficult to find or educators are unaware of how they may integrate these resources into their curricula. The Cultured Web was conceived and Marcia has been giving seminars showing web sites and assisting educators to integrate digital tool into their classrooms.
Marcia has a Master’s degree in Educational Psychology from New York University. She continues to attend conferences and classes to remain at the forefront of the cutting edge of business/educational computer technology.
