Thank you for visiting my blog on education technology!
This is where I post exciting projects, observations of good education technology practices, and new ideas!
As mom to my elementary school daughter and Director of Academic Technology, I spend day and night guiding children through the tech-centered world we live in. I love exploring new edtech tools, creatively redesigning classroom learning experiences, and encouraging young children to dream full STEAM ahead!
I am a huge proponent of using education technology to promote good citizenship skills both online and offline. As one of the first millennials, I’ve called my childhood friends on the landline and chatted with their parents, IM-ed college friends in other dorms before heading to the dining hall, and now regularly tag my grandparents on Facebook. While the tools and platforms that surround us have changed dramatically, the citizenship and social skills translate – this is the most important lesson we can teach our children with education technology!
The posts on this blog center around fostering meaningful conversations about students using education technology. So I want to hear from you! Please join in our conversation by commenting on a post or filling out the contact form!
