The number of technological tools available to educators these days is astounding, and also a bit daunting. You could spend all of your time just learning what is available without learning how to use any of it.
That’s where I can help you out.
Tech Tools for Teachers
I’ve been incorporating technology into my classrooms since the day I placed a black and white LCD panel on top of my overhead projector. Today, I have my own websites. You are here at coachesoftechnology.com. I post online video lessons for my students at physicsthisweek.com. Check it out to see how I incorporate my own technology skills to help students learn. You might not teach physics, but you might want to learn how to set up your own teaching website.
I can help you become familiar with using PowerPoint effectively, using Excel to manage your grades, and incorporating iPad apps into your classroom. You want to spend your time teaching. I can help you learn these tools quickly so that you can use them to teach.
I offer one-on-one help in education-related technology to teachers interested in individualized help. I also offer professional development to schools or school districts in the greater Rochester, NY region.

Technology alone will not make your students learn. I also provide instruction on various teaching methods, including Socratic Questioning, Peer Instruction, and other techniques. For example, see the link below.
