Live Curious, Go Beyond__________________

Hey there, my name is Brendan Solomon and I am super excited to be starting my third year here at ASFM, and first as a Digital Teacher. I graduated from the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada with a degree in elementary education and although Canada is my home, I am quickly learning why many international teachers are so eager to call Monterrey theirs.

I will be teaching fourth grade again and am looking forward to working and collaborating with staff, students, and parents to make this another super successful year. I am also really looking forward to living curious and going beyond the walls of our classroom and trying to take our learning to other places that can help us or others around us.If you have any questions please do not hesitate to send me a quick e-mail or pop by our classroom at 4G.

Hope to see you around!

DT ROLE 16-17

In the first DT meeting of the year we as a group brainstormed the best way to approach the role of a DT and what type of experiences we want to have to best help our colleagues as well as each other increase our proficiency with ED tech. As a way to show these ideas we created visuals to represent the five areas we wanted to focus as a small group. The areas we were hoping to experience more were:
1) Additional coaching with ED tech resources.
2) Practice with new devices and software.
3) Trying new and innovative things.
4) Finding technology that can fit everyone.
5) Fun with experiencing new technology.

Through these five areas we hope that the role of a DT can lead ourselves and others to a place where we can become more comfortable and confident with the uses and applications of both current technology as well as new aspects we may discover along the way.
