Technology Teacher of the Month
Technology has the power to transform how students learn, and one local teacher from Ohatchee High School - Science teacher Blake Jennings has taken that to heart. Jennings is the Calhoun County School District Technology Teacher of the Month. Jennings feels that his focus on technology skills will equip today's learners for tomorrow's world of work, saying technology instruction and learning is collaboration. Calhoun County School District Technology Director Jenel Travis says technology integration is the use of technology resources in daily classroom practices. She adds that successful technology integration is achieved when the use of technology supporting the curriculum goals helps the students to effectively reach their goals. Travis adds that Jennings was recognized because he is always actively engaging his students in projects where technology tools are an integral part of their learning process. Jennings was also awarded an iPad for his classroom.
