Mr. Gurkin has a passion for instructional technology. He desires that teachers use technology as a teaching tool, not as a crutch or a "silver bullet". Technology, well-applied, can extend the teacher's reach and improve student engagement.

TOOLS USED BY MR. GURKIN (I have not received any remuneration from the companies that produces the software below.)
  • Seesaw - This application allows students to build a "digital portfolio".  Mr. Gurkin uses it to show the whole class what each student/group has completed.
  • Notability - This application allows the teacher to present notes to students and have them automatically backed up online for students to be able to access after class.
  • - Gradecam allows teachers to quickly grade multiple-choice tests and quizzes using a webcam or cell phone. The data analysis built in is execptional.
