Clairview School
Class Information:
Students per Class: 200
Class Description:
I am the technology push in teacher, and I created the tech program at my school. This program believes that technology should be used as a tool in the classroom, just as it is used in the working world. This program is based on three ideas: 1. Ensure that students have equitable access to various technologies to produce projects that demonstrate what they have learned. 2. Encourage students to collaborate on projects using different technology mediums. 3. In addition to standardized tests, use alternative assessment strategies that are based on students' performance of authentic tasks. Structural changes to the day: 1. Instead of technology being a pull out class, it will be a push in program. 2. Each student will receive technology push in one period a week, on a rotating day schedule.
Position:
Technology integration teacher
Needs:
I would like the tech program to grow to benefit the students. I would love to have an interactive whiteboard in every classroom, ipod cart, flip videos and digital cameras for every classroom. Dream big!
My Philosophy:
My objective for my students is that they become the most independent and do the best that they can utilizing different technology mediums. I hope to foster critical thinking skills, higher order skills, and problem solving skills within the students that I teach. Books
