As the technology coordinator, it is my responsibility to assist teachers in integrating technology into their classroom instruction. However, technology integration is not a one size fits all category; which is a big reason that I enrolled in the MSET program. It was my hope and goal to discover new technology tools and methods of technology integration that would benefit my teachers and school district. I am excited and grateful to report that both goals have been achieved! Together we will work to create student-centered rather than teacher-centered classrooms that utilize 21st Century Skills and Web 2.0 tools!
