About the Wired Homeschool

Podcast and Blog

The Wired Homeschool provides practical advice for homeschooling parents who use technology as part of their homeschool curriculum. Topics include STEM education, responsible Internet use for families, and how to apply the use of digital devices and media to homeschooling.

John Wilkerson combines his 20+ years of professional experience in I.T. and 17 years of homeschooling 7 children with his wife Lisa to give parents easy to understand advice on the application of technology in their homeschool.

In addition to instructional content, you’ll find articles and podcasts on topics like homeschooling philosophy, how the digital age influences our daily lives, and product reviews.

John Wilkerson

John Wilkerson has been married to Lisa for 19 years and together they have 7 children. Their oldest child is a college graduate, the next is entering college and the other 5 continue learning at home.

John loves gadgets and other geeky things (like Star Wars, Doctor Who, and bacon) and sometimes wishes he could homeschool on the holodeck of the Enterprise.

In the spaces between working full-time, being a husband and father, struggling to follow God, and fixing stuff around the house John tries to find time for his hobbies: podcasting, blogging, social media, backyard astronomy, and coaching soccer.
