About Me

My name is Scott McKenzie and I have been an educator with the Waterloo Regional District School Board for 17 years. 

I share my learning regularly on Twitter: @scottmckenzie27 and on my blog: http://technorookie.blogspot.ca/

I currently teach Grade 3/4 at New Dundee Public School. I have shared my learning on technology at Ontario Edtech conferences, and at various EdCamps. 

I was honoured to speak at TedxKitchenerED in 2014. I am a strong believer that all children should feel successful at school, and I utilize technology to meet the needs of all learners in my classroom.

In 2014 my class connected to a local classroom, to a class in Mexico, and a class in Korea. We did a Global Collaboration for the year using Minecraft Servers, Google Sites, and Google Hangouts.

In 2015 my class connected with a local high school class to work on a passion project to help an endangered species (Little Brown Bats). We used technology to connect our classes, and the Elementary students had the opportunity to work in the Construction shop building the bat houses with high school mentors.

In 2016 I workied on a project integrating coding, and robotics as tools to deepen student comprehension in Mathematics and Language from Grade 1-6. I presented Scratch Jr. and Sphero coding workshops at Wilfrid Laurier's Faculty of Education in August 2016.
