Teaching, Training and Touching Lives

Introduction

This e-portfolio has been designed to display my interest in the merge of Education and Technology we are facing today. Here I have outlined my professional and educational information to give you a better understanding of myself. My passion is to spread to as many people as I can knowledge on how to embrace the change technology and innovation bring to our time. I worked as Instructional Designer at Davidson County Community College in North Carolina for 2 years and then in 2012 got hired as Distance Coordinator at Alamance Community College. After 2.5 years there my mother became ill and I could no longer stay in that position. However presently my new goal is to be able to help anyone that is a school's Faculty/ Administration trainer position to transition from campus teaching to hybrid or online teaching using Learning Management Systems. This includes religious/non-profit organizations and well. I want everyone to understand that online learning can be just as fun and rich as a traditional classroom! I have over 25 years teaching experience so please join me as we explore all that's out there. For training sessions and pricing, please contact me at 336-577-7806 or email me at lizdetoro@live.com. My YouTube channel and book information is on my website www.lizdetoro.com

What is Educational Technology?

There are many definitions on what is Educational Technology, but according to Roblyer and her book "Integrating educational technology into teaching" it is a " combination of the processes and tools involved in addressing educational needs and problems, with an emphasis on applying the most current tools: computers and other technologies."

Master of Education degree with a minor in Technology for Education obtained from Strayer University on March 28, 2010
