Pedagogy Statement

I believe that laptops can be excellent tools to engage students in appropriate real world learning experiences. I believe that authentic engagement is essential for student motivation and eventually mastery of complex material.

I will use laptops in class in a way that allows for maximum student choice and mastery while purposely constructing the lesson to aim toward a particular learning goal. Assessment will be ongoing and both formative and summative.

Students will use laptops in class as a means to collaborate with their peers (both in and out of the class), analyze, evaluate, and create publishable products.
