Stacey Roshan is Upper School technology coordinator and Maths teacher at Bullis School. She has a keen interest in discovering innovative tools to engage students and personalise instruction. She has spent a lot of time working to flip the Mathematics classroom in an effort to shift the culture to a more participatory learning space. Her work on the flipped classroom has been featured in major newspapers such as USA Today, CNN, and The Washington Post, and television on PBS Newshour.
Since I was a teenager, I have always looked forward to the In/Out List published in the Washington Post right before the start of each new year. So, as Innovate My School discusses the ‘Hottest EdTech Trends’ this month, I thought I’d have a little fun and put my own spin on the idea.
I am entering into my 11th year teaching. Looking back on my journey, it is clear to me that my fascination with technology and its role in the classroom has been the most transformative element of my teaching career. Embracing new tech tools and dreaming up ways to effectively implement them in the classroom has been a truly creative outlet for me, and one that has pushed me to be innovative, thoughtful, and intentional in all that I do and create.
