Since technology and curriculum instruction are interwoven, a team of dedicated teachers - Technology Integrators - is needed to facilitate this interaction.
Holley Stabler, Dean of Technology Integration K-12, together with this innovative team, works tirelessly to utilize these tools in the classroom, while simultaneously coaching and training peer faculty to do the same.
Children and teens today are immersed in technology, which together with new media, comes as easy as breathing does to this generation. Teachers must be able to teach technology skills, as well as understand ways to use technology to support instructional goals. Concepts like blogging, digital storytelling, STEAM and cloud computing, should be terms all students not only understand, but use in their daily lives. The Technology Integrators empower and encourage the entire faculty to regularly introduce new technologies into the classroom, which not only involves and engages the 21st century student in learning, but also enables teachers to be the most effective facilitators of education.
