Hi! My name is Philip Morris. I am an English teacher at Locust Valley High School on Long Island, New York. I have been teaching high school English for 13 years and I am interested in how to broaden my 'edutaining' repertoire. Upon joining the HHH Team, I have found that the various “tools” discussed in the courses have enhanced my classroom lessons. My students seem more engaged and enthused when they get to apply technology to literature. The incorporation of technology into my lesson plans has bridged the gap between the students of today and the texts of yore.

SEEWHATSNEW “ TEAM has taken me on some great adventures. This summer I traveled into NYC / MoMA to see how art, science and technology weave together.” MoMA link
“ TEAM has afforded me the opportunity to work on a collaboration project was titled ‘ Artistic Connections’. Although I joined the HHH TEAM late (Spring Semester), I was fortunate to get involved with an enthusiastic group who wanted to use the art of Christo and Jeanne Claude as the lynchpin between the curriculums of science, English, Spanish, and art. The students were encouraged to react to their art through written, oral, and various other assessments.” Christo and Jeanne Claude link
“ TEAM has introduced me to some great people. The projects have encouraged people from different backgrounds to come together for a common purpose – an interest in technology. It has also afforded us the opportunity to share ideas and concerns about technology in and out of the classroom.”
I am not able to narrow the topics of technology to one thing in particular that I would like to learn about. I have thoroughly enjoyed creating the web pages, blogs, digital videos, Webquests and digital photography. I am fascinated by all aspects of technology. What intrigues me most is how I can incorporate it into my classroom lessons and activities and into my personal life.
