Mary Howard has been awarded the 2014 NYSCATE Lee M. Bryant Outstanding Technology Teacher of the year. Many of her technology musings, recommendations and experiences are illustrated in my blog: yoursmarticles.blogspot.com.
Mary Howard is a sixth grade teacher at Veronica E. Connor Middle School, where she teaches ELA and Social Studies. She is also a self-admitted ABSOLUTE technophile! She can often be caught buried in Edmodo, Augmented Reality, Twitter, OpenSim platforms, awesome apps, Web 2.0 tools or simply chasing a tech rabbit down a hole in an attempt to learn some new and exciting way to integrate technology into my classroom. Mary has presented at many conferences and district technology development days including: NYSCATE, Digital Wave, CIT, NETT, NYSSMA, NFRA, In addition, she has been privileged to participate in some excellent technology grants including CSLO projects and EETT through Erie 1 Boces. In 2013, her article on integrating technology with the socratic seminar was published in the In Transitions magazine.
