  • Teacher on Special Assignment (TOSA) Technology Integrator

    For the 2019-2020 school year, I will collaborate with elementary teachers in composing effective technology- infused, content-based lessons, and support teachers as they implement the lessons in their classrooms, aligned to district instructional technology plan.
    Also, I will promote model instructional practices and the role of technology in them, as aligned to the technology standards for students and teachers. 

    What type of projects can I help with?

    1. Using Microsoft Outlook Calendar to schedule meetings/appointments/tasks.
    2. Digitalizing content (pdfs) to present, project and annotate using the Promethean board.
    3. Integrating a Kahoot! review or quiz to facilitate engagement with students.
    4. Creating a Google Classroom to push out assignments, quizzes (automatically scored) videos to view, articles to read and respond to, and more.
    5. Using the Clever Portal with students to connect to Studies Weekly, Learning A-Z, Brain Pop, NewsELA, Readworks.
    6. Creating a Google shared drive with teammates to easily share and plan.
