I am a fourth-grade math teacher turned technology teacher. I help upper elementary teachers (like you!) get organized digitally and engage students with digital tools. I love finding not-so-common ways to use different tech tools and apps to help me be more efficient both in and out of the classroom.
I’m here for teachers like YOU who want to be great with the technology you have (without having to use too much of your time)! You will see that technology isn’t as scary as you think and that it can open up a whole new world to you + your students! (cue Aladdin!)
At my school, I am the go-to for tech-xpertise and I created Tech About Math so that I can help educators like you unlock the endless possibilities of integrating technology into your upper elementary math classroom!
There is so much that can be done at your fingertips and I can’t wait to show you all the possibilities! You will make technology work for you and increase student engagement exponentially, I can help you do that!
Alexandra’s mission is to help educators integrate technology into their math classroom in meaningful ways. It is our goal at Tech About Math to support teachers with organizing themselves digitally and with creating engaging math activities that promote conceptual understanding digitally.
Student engagement needs to be updated for the students in front of you. Technology is constantly changing and it is crucial as educators that we stay up to date and use technology in innovative ways to promote student engagement.
As the Chinese Proverb states, “Do not confine your children to your own learning, for they were born in another time.”
Giving yourself grace as you learn new things is so important. You will make mistakes, there will be technical difficulties, and that is okay. You must give yourself grace and understand that change takes time. As long as you put in the work, it will be rewarded.
Teaching is a collaborative field. We must lean on each other in order to be successful. It is through collaboration that we can grow as educators and improve our pedagogy with new tools.
