About Me
My name is Karen Evans. I have been in the field of education for 20 years, 14 years as a classroom teacher; the remainder in the technology division of education. Upon obtaining my master’s degree in Educational Technology (2002), I became an employee with the Frisco ISD as a Technology Integration Facilitator (TIF). As a Technology Integration Facilitator, my primary duties are: assisting the educator in integrating technology into their curricula, curriculum writing, and conducting multiple staff developments. Concurrently, I created online computer centers (http://www.dovewhisper.com/computercenter.htm); utilized throughout the district, to (both) assist teachers in incorporating the technology as well as enriching their curricula.

In my experience as a classroom teacher, I have witnessed the positive impact technology has had on my students. As this technologically driven world moves forward, the need to adapt the role of the educator, as well as meet the demands of the future, are imperative.

In going from old school to new school, the majority of educators are modifying their baseline teaching approach by facilitating learning, instead of simply dispensing knowledge. Today, technology in the classroom is an instrument utilized to deliver instruction/information to accommodate all learning styles. This said, technology has opened the door to a wealth of information that has the capabilities to enhance the educational structure we offer to our students. Most of our students are entering the classroom with a wealth of pre-exposed knowledge to technology and are aware of what the internet has to offer. As educators, it is essential for us to evolve with this generation and with the evolution of technology into our daily lives.

I will be presenting a workshop on Favorite Web 2.0 Tool for the classroom. If you had to choose your favorite Web 2,0 site to use in the classroom, what would it be? It could be for both students and/or educator (K-12).. I appreciate your assistance.

Do you have any action plans for integrating wireless internet into curriculum and instruction?

Hi K.L.,

With your work as a technology facilitator I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform.
Both are web based, have a bunch features and free basic service. I think both technologies will be helpful to Frisco staff and students especially if you're trying to get a bit more online.
