My name is Luke. I'm a retired teacher who has spent over 33 years in the classroom, primarily with 6th-8th grade students.
I have been a frequent presenter at ICE and have also presented at conferences around the midwest, southeast and in Canada.
My sessions, workshops and resources target the teachers who may have a limited “techie” background and just want to become more comfortable with the computer technology they’re using. Very few school districts provide this type of staff development, and pursuing it on one’s own can be both time-consuming and expensive. I like to encourage teachers to explore the tech, tinker under the hood and raise their overall comfort level. If they’re more comfortable with the technology, they’re more likely to make better use of it, and in the long run, everyone benefits.
