Klein ISD’s teaching and learning podcast showcasing leaders around the district who make a daily impact on others and are reflective, joyful, transparent, & apply their learning to transform the world.
Kim Sharp, digital learning specialist, is our guest for this episode and we talk about all things technology. In this conversation we talk about technology integration activities for the classroom, how to start small to keep from being overwhelmed when incorporating new digital tools in your lesson design, how to move from technology substitution to modification and redefinition, and more!
In this episode, I'm joined by Kalya Zitmann (intructional specialist) and we talk about how to create tangible personal learning paths for student academic growth, what creativity for technology usage looks like in the classroom, how the "why" of what we do is so important to the students we serve, and how using data to track progress will help our students retain the content we teach. There's so much more so come along and learn with us!
Welcome to our inaugural episode where we welcome our first guest, Dr. Jenny McGown, who is the Deputy Superintendent of Klein ISD. In this episode we talk about tangible examples of risk-taking in schools, suggestions for being innovative without forcing it and first focusing on the people, how important self-reflection is in the educational environment, and how we can teach our students to have all of these qualities to be more successful in their lives.
