Below you will find an projects created for the ILT Masters program at the University of Colorado Denver.
Below you will find an assortment of professional development trainings I created while employed by Jeffco Public Schools. These are technology-based resources to help teachers learn different learning management systems, educational software/websites and other tools.
1:1 Device Management in the Classroom
This is a Powerpoint presentation I created as a resource for other teachers. When I started as a teacher in Jeffco I was the only teacher in my building who had taught in a 1:1 classroom (where all teachers and all students had iPads). I was tasked with training teachers on best practices for classroom management. The presentation contains a basic set of guidelines and serves as a starting off point for a teacher who is unsure where to begin.
Using PearDeck for Student Engagement
After attending a Google Educator Summit from EdTechTeam in 2017 I was asked to create a professional development/training for the educational tool, PearDeck. The slides shown were designed to illustrate to teachers of different contents how this tool could be utilized within their own classrooms. Please note: This is not a fully functional demo of the tool, only a PDF of the slides used for the training. Unfortunately a license and login are required to view the interactive slides.
Assessing Student Learning Using Schoology
Many teachers new to Jeffco are not familiar with our primary learning platform, Schoology. I created a series of self guided documents to help teachers learn how to use the built-in assessment tool on Schoology. The training was delivered as a PDF because the idea was that teachers could receive the information via e-mail and follow step by step without needing to attend a separate training.
Utilizing Schoology to Group Learners
This training is another in my Schoology series and is designed to help teachers utilize Schoology in order to create student groupings. Teachers can choose to group students based on learning style, class, comprehension level, etc. within the Schoology framework.
Designing Responsive Rubrics in Schoology
This is the final training within my Schoology series and the purpose was to demonstrate how to utilize the rubric system within Schoology. This tool allows teachers to set their standards and click directly on the rubric when grading online, rather than having to write on a paper rubric and do the math separately.
Below are a collection of my personal projects. For now, I have included my some of my recent photography galleries but stay tuned for more content.
