Key / Social Studies teacher
8/9 Key Teacher
For the past 14 years, I have had the privilege of teaching in our Key Department, in many subject areas, from grades 6-9, and also enjoyed the opportunity of being the Head of Department. The last number of years have allowed me to focus on educational technology due to our 1:1 iPad program. Along the way I was introduced to Sketchnoting and could not ignore the impact it had on my students, and on me! It was so clear what they understood and what they were struggling with. They were making meaning! We’ve been sketching every since.
Hi! I teach in the Middle School KEY department (special education) at Collingwood School. This year is our third year in a 1:1 iPad program. We have seen, first hand, the benefits that the iPad can have in a classroom for children with learning exceptionalities.
