Honorary Tech Ninja
Why do you make an excellent "Tech Ninja"?
I love to present things I learn at conferences and #edcamps. I really like the idea of teachers sharing things for the classroom and working smarter, not harder.
What are some of your favorite Web 2.0 tools, and why?
Right now I really like using Explain Everything with my teachers. It is a great place to start understanding how to use the iPads with students. I also like the apps Answer Underground and Ask 3. Piktochart has been fun to use for creating infographics with students. I also like FlipSnack for teachers to create cool flipbooks online.
Why is technology important in education?
Technology is what students are growing up with these days. The old system of text book learning, standardized testing and memorization needs to be pushed aside. We have to prepare kids to use higher order thinking skills and integrate technology in a ubiquitous way to be successful in education.
