Education begins with the simple phrase, "I don't know."
Beyond the basics, students will need 21st century skills to survive and thrive in the future. They will have to know how to think critically, apply knowledge to new situations, analyze information, understand new ideas, communicate effectively, collaborate, solve problems, and make decisions.
As teachers, we are always looking for ways to help students acquire these new skills while they also address NCLB mandates. My role as Educational Technologist is dedicated to assisting you as a trainer, mentor or coach in delivering technology solutions that allow students to explore new ways and to learn new skills and use the tools that engage them.
As I enter my third year in this position, I continue to see the growth and confidence teachers and students are gaining from the use of both our district and online technologies. I look forward to another great year of exploring and having great successes in our uses of instructional technologies.
