Find me on Twitter as @MrsDi
I use Google Glass with all my students. We are also a Google Apps For Education School. We have Chromebooks, iPads, laptops, iMac, BYOD, cell phones in class, interactive whiteboards, AppleTV, and more. Web 2.0 resources are utilized and we collaborate with other schools and students globally. The school is also involved in competitions such as Lego League (globals 2013), Verizon App Challenge (National Winners 2013), and new opportunities such as SeaPerch (underwater ROV) this year. There is always something interesting happening with tech integration at the school.

Exploring squishy circuits
I am always learning - Google Summits, EdCamps, Twitter chats, conferences, MOOCs, online coursework, webinars, etc.
Goals for this Class
I am working on my 2nd Masters degree in which I will combine my Graduate Certificate in Mind, Brain, and Teaching with another in Leadership in Technology Integration. The brain, learning, and technology are absolutely fascinating to me.
Technology and the Science of Learning is another opportunity for me to learn about utilizing technology to enhance learning.
Outside of School
You can often find me with family around water.
I am also really good at being a spectator at my kid's sporting events.
They love playing flag football with one son playing in the NFL Nationals when his team was ranked 6th in the country.
I look forward to getting to know classmates!
