Technology in the Classroom

Initially, my presentations focused on how to use technology in the classroom. I had often felt frustrated with technology, like a teacher stranded on an island, lacking colleagues to commiserate with. I hoped my presentations would bring together a community of educators, able to overcome "teacher island" obstacles. In 2009, I worked with other educators in my school district to create a team of teachers we called the Mac Team.  I wrote the rationale behind our request to equip a motivated group of teachers and their students with expensive technology. This link to the Mac Team rationale also represents the intent of my technology presentations.

I have created tutorials and presented in my school district and local area many times. The links below represent some of those experiences.
