Finding the right technology for the classroom teacher is my passion. As the Director of Instructional Technology at Jenks Public Schools I will work with all stakeholders to make sure that every student graduating from our district will have the Essential Life Skills for the 21st century.
In my 16 years in the classroom I have used many different types of technology. The technology I was given was not implemented well and many times became a learning and teaching disability. My plan deals with how essential technology is identified by the district, assessed, and implemented into the classroom curriculum.
- Identify Essential Technology
- Assess Teachers on Essential Technology
- Train experts on Implementing Essential Technology Into the Curriculum
- Professional Development for Implementing Essential Technology into the Curriculum
Working with a great group of professionals in IT, Teaching & Learning and administration, we will move towards this goal.
