I view technology as being a great way that we can improve education in order to get high levels of learning for all students. Technology can be the accelerator in education to get us to where we want to be for our learners. I made wide use of technology in my own classrooms in order to create a more effective learning environment and now help others do this in my own district, as well as in other districts.
I am an authorized Google for Education Trainer and Google for Education Innovator. I have a Masters in Curriculum and Instructional Technology from Iowa State University. I can setup trainings for teachers over the wide variety of Google Apps, from Google Docs, Sites, Sheets, to all the use of Add-ons and other tools that Google Provides. I use Google Apps throughout my work as a Technology Integrationist and used them extensively in my classrooms with students. I have conducted trainings at my own school as well as other schools and in my conference presentations.
I have presented at multiple conferences including ISTE, Midwest Google Summit, NETA, ITEC, Iowa 1:1, and TIES. My sessions have focused on how we can improve the learning environment using tools that are widely available. The focus is always on how we can use various tools to improve student learning. You can find more information about my presentations on my Presentations page and see my whole presentation list on my About page.
While I live in Ames, IA, I am open to traveling to nearby regions in order to help you and your district. If you have any questions, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
