Armstrong Elementary

2015-2016

Welcome Back!

I am very excited about starting a new school year! Last year, I really enjoyed working with you and your students and I am looking forward to another great year.


I noticed several new faces so let me introduce myself. My name is Natalie Driver and I am the Digital Learning Specialist for your campus. My position provides me with the opportunity to assist you with integrating technology into your curriculum. I can help you plan and implement a lesson with the iPads or in the computer lab. One of my favorite integration tools is videoconferencing unit. I can help you find an event that your students would love. If you are looking for a new Web 2.0 tool to motivate and engage your students, let me know I would love to show you a few of my favorites. As you are planning your lessons email me and let me know how I can help.


I can’t wait to start working with you and your students!

Discovery Education - Board Builder

Have you used the Board Builder feature in Discovery Education yet? The Board Builder tool creates digital posters, and the best part is you can use the images and videos already in Discovery Education. If you would like to learn more, contact me.
