Learning is a lifelong journey. I’m privileged to have the opportunity to walk alongside others as we take the journey together, and we’re both richer for the experience.

I invite you to learn along with me.

Information Literacy

Digital technology has changed the landscape of education, and schools must adapt their practices to keep pace. Teachers and students need new literacy skills, and my expertise and experience as the developer of AllAboutExplorers.com make me uniquely suited to help transform learning in your school or district.

Gifted Education

A longtime educator and recognized leader in the field of gifted education, I bring a depth of knowledge and experience unmatched by anyone else. My unique approach integrates gifted services throughout a school, showing how best practices in gifted education support not only the exceptional learner but also every student through regular access to challenging opportunities.

Elementary Math

I bring more than 20 years of experience teaching and supervising mathematics K-6, so I understand the unique challenges of creating a culture and environment for depth and rigor in the elementary math classroom. Today it is more important than ever that elementary students learn transferable problem solving skills.

What Others Have to Say

Gerald Aungst is a national leader on educational technology, and he has played an important role in sharing his expertise and modeling digital learning strategies as part of the Alliance for Excellent Education’s Digital Learning Day and Project 24.  Gerald’s grounded approach also focuses on what educators and school systems can do to make a true difference for student learning.



Gerald is a passionate educator with innovative ideas. He’s done an excellent job of infusing the Common Core into every aspect of curriculum development, and he’s able to lead large projects with ease. Gerald leverages every tool at his disposal to build relationships and stir change.

Gerald’s passion for effective instruction is evident in everything he does—working with students, collaborating with teachers, organizing and providing professional development activities, and leading colleagues through change. His style is professional, personable and encouraging, making him the right person to assist with innovative education initiatives.


Gerald has always proved to be a talented educator and resourceful colleague. His commitment and desire to have any project he is involved in succeed is not only inspiring but leaves an impression with all those who work with him. The paradigm of life-​​long learning that he displays is what all school administrators should have at the forefront of their pedagogy.


Whenever I have an idea that needs fleshing out, I know I can count on Gerald to provide honest, informed and intelligent feedback. We worked together closely to co-​​author an ASCD article, which was a wonderful experience due to Gerald’s professionalism and attention to detail. He is a passionate, forward-​​thinking and open minded educator and administrator.

Gerald is always seeking new ways of reaching staff to create a positive ethos for change. He’s active in professional learning networks, both offering information, ideas, and resources to others as well as supporting others to process 21st learning work. He reaches out to build relationships, understands the nature of learning at high levels of thought and experience, actively engages in development work.


Gerald is a great leader and communicator. I have asked him to present for me because he is wonderful at making people feel at ease, sharing his vision, and organizing educators to follow through on a greater vision for education.

Gerald’s creativity and understanding of the learning process were extremely valuable in writing materials that would have broad appeal and application to groups of adults.
