About EdWorlds

Established in 2010, EdWorlds is a two-person company dedicated to the appropriate use of educational technologies to support online instruction.

Jeff Sale, Lead Developer

 Jeff received his B.S. in Physics with emphasis in condensed matter from San Diego State University in 1989. Following this, he spent two and a half years supporting clinical neuroscience research under Dr. Doug Will and alongside Dr. Dave Warner (who was an M.D./Ph.D. student at the time) at Loma Linda University Medical Center's Neurology Research Center (NRC), during which time he helped pioneer new ways of integrating and applying virtual reality, novel sensor technologies, and data visualization techniques to the clinical setting in areas such as quantitative assessment of movement disorders (Parkinson's Disease, Huntington's Disease, ALS), physical rehabilitation (augmentative communication, environmental control), and electrophysiological measurement and assessment of bioelectromagnetic data (EEG, ECG, EMG, MEG).
He did two years of graduate work in neurophysiology at Loma Linda University and was a research assistant at the Parkinson's Research Center (PRC) at Jerry L. Pettis Veterans Medical Center under the direction of Dr. Jeff Tosk within the research wing of Dr. Ross Adey.
He assisted with research into the biophysical basis of Parkinson's Disease and related movement disorders, including in vitro cell culture work with dopaminergic neurons, using HPLC to measure dose-response to amphetamine, photoacoustic spectroscopy work on the optical absorption properties of neuromelanin, and chemiluminescent studies of oxidative burst in J774 macrophage cells as a model for microglial cell death.
Jeff spent five years as Staff Scientist with the Education Center on Computational Science and Engineering, where he directed work on the incorporation of high-performance computing including modeling, simulations, visualization and data-intensive computing into the undergraduate curriculum.
Jeff is currently Educational Programmer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center on the UCSD campus. He works to promote the use of cyberinfrastructure within the K-12 and undergraduate education community through workshops, training, and curriculum development in collaboration with a talented group of co-workers and educators.
Jeff has extensive experience in education courseware development with emphasis on challenging concepts in science. He has published and presented work in such diverse areas as visualization of electrophyisological data, virtual reality technologies applied to neurorehabilitation, distributed medical intelligence, and instructional design of CD-ROM video-based case studies for pre-service teachers in math and science education. Jeff's CV is available on request.

Jodi Reed - Education Technology Consultant

Jodi received her Master's in Education Technology from San Diego State University back in 1993. She taught high school math and physics at Carlsbad High School for four years before leading a medical , education technology development team at Loma Linda University's School of Medicine. Jodi co-directed the LLU SoM Risley Hall Learning Center with Jeff before accepting a Pacific Bell Knowledge Network Fellowship at San Diego State University where she collaborated with Tom March and Bernie Dodge on some pioneering education technologies for teachers all over the world, including Blue Web'n and Filamentality (still currently in use).

Jodi currently works full-time as a professor at Cuyamaca College where she teaches web design and programming.
