Candidate for Technology Facilitator
To use my strong ability to connect with educators to provide support in the area of technology, innovation and project development to enhance student engagement and achievement on a district level.
I've always been told that the secret to happiness in life is to do something that you feel passionately about. Technology, Innovation, the Project Building Process...these are all things that I feel deeply about on the professional level. I want to be a part of the evolution of schools into the 21st century.
For years, most approaches to education have been steeped in tradition that dates back to the early 1900's. A classroom from 1950 looked the same as one from the 70s which in turn is reflected in the setting of most classrooms today, in the year 2015.
We are loosing students to this highly sophisticated technological age in which we live. Most newborns are interacting with technology before they can form words or even walk. There needs to be an innovative approach in educating these minds and I want to be a part of this change.

Each category of the rubric for this assessment was singled out so that students would be able to focus on one skill at a time. They then had to rank their comfort level with each skill. The results of this survey were then posted for students to analyze and identify what specific areas the class needs to spend more time with. These results are posted in the photo gallery directly underneath the link.
The link below is a small project I've started with a few of my tech savy students. I want to see what we can do with this application before I fully adopt use of it in my classroom.
