Learning and Connecting with 21st Century Technical Skills!
with Jennifer Miller, Spotlight Speaker
Jennifer Miller is an instructional technologist and teacher at Dublin ISD in Dublin, Texas. Jennifer has taught technology applications for 10 years at the secondary level, worked as the district's instructional technologist for the past 2 1/2 years, taught dual credit and CIS courses in database design in the university setting as a adjunct professor, and is interested in connecting K12 educators and students across the state via social media platforms. Project Share is a free tool that is allowing students in Dublin ISD to learn in a true, 21st century mobile environment. Project Share is a great way for classrooms and professionals to build connections with other educational stakeholders. Jennifer has a graduate degree in Computer Information Systems, a Master Technology Teaching certificate, TCEA Technology Director Certificate, Technology Applications K-12 Certificate, and a Business Administration teaching certificate.
Teaching instructional technology and 21st Century Learning techniques is a welcomed challenge that requires a lifelong commitment to learning. Students must be curious enough to be motivated to interact, ask questions, collect information, analyze information, understand media literacy, collaborate across cultures, and truly become a global citizen. It is my job to motivate the entire team and to model appropriate positive behavior. "Teaching is a calling for me, and I cannot see myself doing anything else. I enjoy the kids, the connections created, and watching teachers and students grow professionally. I strongly believe in challenging educational stakeholders and students to produce a better world by making connections and building relationships. I am thankful to have this opportunity."
