Planning, preparation and delivery of technology related in service programs and instruction in collaboration with other professionals at a variety of instructional levels that utilizes technology in problem solving based upon:
- Pennsylvania Academic Standards
- strengths and needs of learners at all levels of technological proficiency
- established technology implementation plans
These artifacts are an example of my efforts to integrate technology all levels of proficiency. This movement stems from a previous Web 2.0 Professional Development Session I held. A teacher, whom is not that comfortable with technology sought out the possibility of creating podcasts of her in-class discussions in her Philosophy. I showed her how to record the discussions and am slowly teaching her how to transform them into podcasts and post them on her classroom teacher webpage.

We defined free time, learned and reviewed the premise of 20% Time, went over potential grading scenarios of the project, and thought of potential 20% Time projects that we would pursue if we were allotted this time in our careers.
