Educational Technology Key Concepts Portfolio

My name is Michele Baskin and I am finishing up my 9th year as a Chemistry teacher and Science Department Chair at Duke Ellington School of the Arts. Since I started at Ellington, I have sought ways to use technology in my classroom to become more efficient with the routine functions of teaching multiple different courses to almost 180 students. As the number of students has dropped to more manageable levels, the time seemed right to seek out ways to utilize technology to influence my instruction in ways that increased student learning. That led me to Loyola's Educational Technology program. In this portfolio I highlight tasks and assignments that have furthered my development as a user of technology in the classroom as well as a technology leader in my school.
