It had been several weeks since I had visited Wright Elementary, so I recently emailed out to Wright staff to see how edtech integration is going. One of the responses led to the Q & A below, and a well-deserved #ShelbyTUITshoutout for Melissa Young, a fourth grade teacher who specializes in math and word work. In particular, her discussion of using edtech to differentiate led to some interesting anecdotes and insights.
Melissa, introduce yourself to our readers. How long have you taught at Wright? Where did your learning of integrating edtech begin?
Tell us about some of the ways you are integrating technology this year.
Glad to hear how edtech is making differentiation easier! In what ways did you try differentiation before technology?
I'm flattered and happy that I could help. What edtech tools are you looking forward to using in the near future?
Thank you, Melissa, and congratulations!
