PA Discovery Educators Published!


Congratulations to PA STARs, Meg Griffin and Jared Mader.  Both were published in the February 2008 (Vol. 35 No. 5) issue of ISTE‘s journal Learning and Leading with Technology

Meg, an elementary teacher in the Central Bucks School District, was featured in the Point/Counterpoint segment addressing the Yes side of “Has technology improved your home-to-school connection?”  In her response, Meg highlighted her use of Web 2.0 applications to foster the home-school connections in her class. (pages 8-9)

Jared, a chemistry teacher in the Red Lion Area School District, co-authored an article about using iPods to engage students in the study of science.  Jared and his co-author, fellow Red Lion Area High School teacher Ben Smith, discussed their use of podcasting and vodcasting to extend classroom learning.  (pages 28-30)

We are all lucky to have both Meg and Jared in our learning network!
