What is iTECH and why should I be interested?


iTECH is an acornym for a 5 part model (much like the design process for STEM teachers or the 5E method for science) that walks through learning and using any new technology tool in a way that enhances learning for students and takes the responsibility off of the teacher to explicitly teach.
Are you interested in teaching in innovative ways? Do you have the right mindset to revolutionize the way technology tools are used in the classroom? Then you are the perfect fit to learn and use the iTECH Model in your classroom.

This model is research-based and classroom-tested by media specialists, technology teachers, technology facilitators, and classroom teachers at the elementary level. We all saw remarkable results and came to the same conclusions- students using the iTECH model are engaged and creating amazing final products with little to no formal technology instruction. You won't find this information anywhere else because it is brand new. 
To learn more about the WHY of iTECH, including the research study that I completed with this model, click here.
