"If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow" -John Dewey
Hello and welcome to my portfolio! My name is Megan Farver, and I am currently a 2nd grade teacher at Dundee Elementary School in the Garaway Local School district. While I am not an online or technology teacher, I strive to incorporate both 21st Century Skills and a vast array of technologies into my everyday teaching methods. My students truly enjoy school because they get to use the technologies they love everyday. I would like to work in a technology-related field or become an online educator with the Instructional Technology Master's degree I will be receiving from Kent State University in August 2013.
I have presented at numerous conferences and in-house professional development opportunities. Teachers call me the "techie" of my building. I have presented on many different topics, including "The Best Tech Tools for Teachers", Class Dojo, Google Treks, Online Interactives for the Writing Process, and much more. Speaking professionally to teachers is something I really enjoy outside of the classroom.
Finally, welcome to the portfolio that I have put together as a reflection on both the ISTE Coaching Standards as well as my experiences in the ITEC Master's Compter/Technology Endorsement program. Click on one of the six main standards on the sidebar or one of the links below to begin.
