Dr. Hunter is an educational psychologist who studied human learning and development, educational measurement and research methodology/statistics.  In the early 1980s, his interests were in educational technology with early foci on coding (LOGO) and the impact of technology on writing, for which he coined the term "technography."  More recently, he has focused on innovative uses of technology in postsecondary settings and on the ways that K-12 schools internationally have used online learning to promote intercultural learning.
