Hi, I’m Brittany. I’m an educator obsessed with technology and passionate about teaching students 21st century skills. I’m so glad you came to visit my website.
My very first official teaching job was as a technology teacher. I went to an interview for a 5th grade position and we ended up talking about starting up a technology program at the school. My master’s degree in technology education made me the perfect fit. I had no idea what I was going to do but was so excited for the opportunity. There was a lot of “fake it until you make it” happening my first year!
Within just a few years I figured out some things that worked really well for me (and about a million things that went terribly, horribly wrong) and this inspired me to share my experiences with other tech teachers.
Some questions you probably have that I figured out along the way…
- Ugh, I have to track data and give grades?! Let me help you get organized
- What in the world do I do if my students don’t work at the same pace? Early finisher activities
- How do I make sure all of my students are learning the standards? Take my free email course
- How do I plan for 6+ grade levels each week? Save yourself the headache!
- I’m brand new at teaching tech. How do I even get started?
- The classroom teachers want me to do what? Online Research Skills for Students
- What do I do when the technology isn’t working? Unplugged Technology Stations
- I know how to teach, but I have no idea how to be a technology teacher. Here are 7 tips for transitioning
I’d love to connect with you on social media! Here are my profiles:
The products you will find for sale in my stores are things I have created for my (and my colleagues’) classroom. I strive to blog about new tools and strategies to try, and you will also find some lifestyle posts. If my posts are ever from paid sponsors, I will make sure to mark them as such. Below you can read more details about how that works.
