As I head into the last month of school I begin to think about what I will work on this summer to improve my classroom next year. Teaching and learning are always connected, to improve our teaching skills we must continue to be learners ourselves.
I’m looking forward to presenting and learning at ISTE in Chicago this year. I’m sure it will be a whirlwind of excitement and a cacophony of greetings with a wealth of warm exchanges while meeting new educators from around the country.
This year I will be presenting with my colleague, “We’re 1:1, Now What? Maximizing Student Learning in 1:1 Environment.” We look forward to sharing what we have learned utilizing the digital advantages of 1:1 devices in our classroom and also how to manage student distractions from being online. As a Microsoft Showcase School, we are familiar with being on the cutting edge of educational technology and the wealth of opportunities it can bring for student and educator communication and collaboration. We are also keenly aware that working in a digital environment with students takes classroom management skills and tools to make lessons run smoothly with technology being the digital accelerator to learning.
