Whether you’re an elementary gen ed classroom teacher, secondary teacher, technology specialist or administrator… and regardless of whether you’re BYOD, 1:1, looking for apps or just some web 2.0 resources and inspiration… I bet I have a Pinterest board for that!
Welcome to my “new” EdTech blog. I say “new” because I’m definitely not new to blogging or social media, but this IS a new space for me to organize ideas, inspiration, and resources that I find and use related to education. I have several different blogs that I post to for different personal facets of my life, and I felt it was time that my professional passions also had their own space.
My name is Lesley, and I’m an Instructional Technology Specialist in Indiana. I’m formerly a classroom teacher, (4th grade, kindergarten, and middle school computers) and these days I work closely with teachers to help integrate the use of technology to support best practices, standards, and the engagement of students.
Don’t be shy! I’m also on Twitter, regularly following and participating on the #edtech and #edchat hashtags, where all of the gems in the online education universe seem to be found. It’s a great place to connect with other educators and learn about new tools and ways that people are using technology in their classrooms.
Hopefully you’ll find something useful here!
