How are you involved in education?
Second Grade Teacher- Eastern Lancaster County School District- Brecknock Elementary- Denver, PA
What’s your ideal classroom or school like?
My ideal classroom would be one where the instruction was student centered. The students would be able to choose what they wanted to learn about and they would constantly be engaged in authentic learning experiences. My classroom would be filled with technology at our fingertips. Each student would have his/her own computer and I would have a smartboard to teach from. Our classroom assignments would include lots of Web 2.0 tools and the students would engage in activities that would involve collaborative learning and problem solving experiences.
Have you ever attended an unconference before?
EdCamp Philly 2011 is my first one.
If you were to lead a session at Edcamp, what would it be about?
I am new to the “unconference” conference this year. I would consider presenting next year. (Possibly on… using Skype in the classroom, Kid Blog or Digital Storytelling)
