PD Challenges Utilizing Mobile Technology
Lisa has 13+ years of educational experience ranging from teaching HS English & MS Math to international curriculum development, creating and presenting workshops, and even running technology integration camps across the state. Currently, Lisa serves as an Educational Technologist for Eanes ISD which proudly supports an 1:1 iPad initiative from K-12. Additionally, she has been recognized and selected as an Apple Distinguished Educator.
Her love for “cooking up” technology integrated lessons and the need for a creative & productive outlet led her to create the TechChef4u blog in early May of 2011. Lisa continues to share her app-thusiasm for iLearning and purposeful integration of mobile devices in schools districts and conferences worldwide. She feels very strongly about providing authentic and engaging professional development resources across multiple platforms (e.g. Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Google+, Thinglink, iTunes U, MailChimp... ) to meet the needs of a diverse population of educators.
Other TechChef4u delectable digital delights are the TechChef4u app, “Hot Apps 4 HOTS” iBook, and “Appy Hours 4 U” podcast. Recently, Lisa has expanded her interests in technology integration to include a Chic Geek iJewelry line (now available on etsy) to fully support those that enjoy dressing the part... ;)
