The goal of this blog is to share my reflections on utilizing technology in educational settings to improve students 21st century skills. By following a systematic GAME plan for both these requirements, I am confident that I will be able to strengthen my proficiency for integrating technology into my content location instruction. Brad Fisher, Technology Coordinator, Disney: Over the previous 11 years, this technologies coordinator has transformed his school from a school with a single laptop lab with a teacher to now possessing over 18 laptop labs and over 700 computer systems. Through the use of diverse presentation tools such as Wikispaces, Voicethread, and Glogster students are gaining capabilities which help with digital literacy, collaboration with peers and efficient analysis.
He continues to upgrade and evolve with technology in his school by bringing technologies into the hands of the teachers and students as witnessed by his transition from personal computer labs to promethean boards to tablet computers. There was a time at Spencer where technology was one thing that was employed only by teachers, with small opportunity for students to discover and construct their studying. These writing assignments will yield massive rewards for both the student and the teacher community.
She has spearheaded several productive technologies implementations such as the TIP a single-to-a single laptop system and was 1 of the initial CPS educators to bring iPads into the classroom. She leads a team that is very collaborative and trailblazing the use of technology not only for CPS, but for the globe. Thanks for this post on the ten useful concepts to integrate writing into the science classroom.
Nicole Zumpano, Teacher, Could: For the final 4 years Nicole has been the lead technologies teacher at Could. She has taken her students to local, state, and national conferences to promote and showcase the significance of technology in the classroom, which proves her dedication to her students and love for technology. These individuals have demonstrated sturdy leadership in the regions of technology and technology integration.
Final week, I was invited to apply/got accepted to attend the extremely 1st Educational Technology Summer season Institute via my district!! I met some incredible teachers in the district(shout out to my techy close friends!!) that are just as excited/in love with studying how to use technology in the classroom as I am!! I developed a BYOD stoplight (when to use their devices), technology guidelines for the classroom, Just before you.. Believe!
