Bio: After teaching for 12 years, I joined the Cape Girardeau School District as Instructional Technology Specialist in 2013. I believe technology is the future of education. But it’s more about the change in instruction that comes along with technology than the devices themselves. Through technology we can foster more creative learning environments, differentiating instruction to meet the needs of every student, creating productive, responsible, digital citizens for future generations.
A Note about The Answer Pad: When I first discovered The Answer Pad it was as if I had finally discovered a tool designed by teachers, for teachers. It gives me the ability to continue my whole-class discussions and instruction, while adding a level of interactivity and assessment. Students become more engaged in the lesson material and I gain that key knowledge of just how much my students are truly understanding. At my current district level position, I am excited to share and promote The Answer Pad to my teachers. They are already seeing the power that can come from a truly connected and interactive web tool such as this.
