Ali Forey – News 10 Teacher of the Month

EmailPrintFriendlyBufferShare

Quite often I get asked questions like, “What exactly does an instructional technologist do?” “Why should teachers be using technology in their classroom?”  “How can interactive whiteboards be used for student learning?”  A student in our district nominated her math teacher for News10 Teacher of the Month.  I’m fortunate enough to know this student (along with her fantastic mom) and the personal story of how technology in conjunction with a engaging, relevant, and caring teacher has helped this student reach honors student status in a subject that she previously called her “worst class” for many years.

Take a moment to watch the video.  It does a great job of showing how technology, specifically academic discourse conversations facilitated by a classroom response system and video lessons on an iPods, can assist an effective teacher in reaching new academic heights with their students.
