Cardinal Techie at Work!
The Ed.Tech Team asked Mr. Chmiel a few questions. Let's learn a little bit more about this techie Cardinal!
Favorite technology you use (personal or business):
My favorite part of technology is Yelp. My wife and I love to eat good food, and Yelp helps us find great restaurants of every kind of food you can imagine. Without it, my life would be significantly less enjoyable.
What do you find most useful when integrating technology in the classroom?
I find it most useful to use technology in a collaborative way that gives students ownership of their learning, while at the same time taking work away from me so that I can focus on other things, like providing feedback to students.
What piece of advice would you give those trying to integrate technology in the classroom?
My advice to anyone who wants to integrate technology into their classroom: think about what any given tool can provide that isn't already provided by something else. I remember being at an AP conference once where some highly-awarded teachers did a session on using iPads in the classroom. All we did was use a "white board" app to write and display our answers to the group. Those were really expensive white boards. In that situation, we would have to think: what can iPads do that white boards, paper, textbooks, etc. could never do?
