I'm a former independent school teacher hoping to return to the fold. Currently teaching TV Production at a large public high school in central Florida, I've also taught digital design, web development and psychology and was a technology specialist (integrationist) and have done a large amount of web development in the private sector. Hoping to relocate to the New York City area.
One of the things I'm hoping to learn about are some of the educational technologies used by independent schools that aren't in use (read: banned) by the school district I work at.
I'm Tiffany Musa. I'm the Middle School Program Director, 6th Grade humanities teacher and 2nd-4th grade technology teacher at St. Anne's School of Annapolis. I'm looking forward to networking with everyone and sharing thoughts/ideas about technology in the classroom.
I am a PreK teacher at Admiral Farragut Academy in St. Petersburg, Florida. I am so fortunate to have a Smart Board and iPads in my classroom, yet there are days when I feel like these "centers" are really just glorified babysitters, even though they are educational apps. What are your thoughts or suggestions?
I am a PreK teacher at Admiral Farragut Academy in St. Petersburg, Florida. I have a multi-aged classroom of students who range in age from 3 to 5 yrs. Our school started a school-wide STEM initiative two years ago, so last year, I decided to include the youngest students on campus. I was thrilled with the results. My PreK scientists loved putting on their lab coats everyday to conduct experiments. This year, I hope to incorporate more engineering ideas and enhance my technology curriculum. I look forward to learning from each of you!
