  • I’m the Asst. Director for learning technologies at the college, the equivalent to your instructional technologist at your school. It is my job to help all faculty members integrate technology into their classrooms. I was certified in 7-12 and taught Technology Ed in Middle & High School. This morning we are going to discuss why we should use technology in the classroom, and this afternoon we will be doing some hands-on activities in Poe Hall Computer labs
