Teacher Professional Development: I need a professional development technology integration tool, a Lenovo desktop, to download iTunes U so I can learn free courses from different institutions. <profdevpilot>
It is my goal as an educator to be current and up-to-date with the 21st century so that my students can be competitive with today's world of technology.
I believe that any student from any background can achieve great things.
I teach at South Central Los Angeles where crime, divorce and chaos exist, however, there is no excuse for failure. I come to work every day expecting the best from each individual and the students know that. I challenge them to the limits and they respond to the challenge. My students know I care for them, and that I respect them as people. I am currently the grade level chair, Gifted and Talented coordinator and I'm the UTLA chair for my school. I have many responsibilities and I am constantly searching for free professional developments that will help me grow as a professional and individual.
I need a computer such as the Lenovo desktop. I am planning to download the iTunes U. This application will help me get free professional developments from many universities such as MIT, Harvard and Stanford. All lectures are free to the public. I introduced robotics to my class last year but I feel that I need to learn more as a teacher. The iTunes U offers free professional development for beginning robotics and coding. So I really need this computer so I can start learning from this amazing site.
Having the Lenovo computer would be such a powerful addition to my class.
I really believe that by preparing my students for the future through robotics, they will be far more prepared for higher education and today's workforce. This technology would make such a difference to me and my professional growth as an educator. It will help me to become a better teacher.Read More
