Educational Technology

"[We] are—first and foremost—teachers, required to be licensed in Virginia as content area teachers with at least three years of experience. The first word—instructional—is the second most important part of the title; this separates [us] from information technology and technical support positions. The technology resource portion of the title indicates the job’s focus: [We] are intended to be teachers of teachers, providers of technology professional development, and supporters of instruction."

Educational Technology

 
MrReeves Dear Friends,
 
I’m Mr. Reeves, and I’m the Instructional Technology Coordinator, or “ITC” at Yorktown. I was a music teacher for most of my career, and became an educational technologist because I love the art and science of learning and teaching and am fascinated that each individual student learns in an entirely unique way. I want to help as many kids and teachers as I can!
 
Educational Technology ("EdTech") is about learning first and foremost. It is a field of teaching, research, professional development, and leadership that seeks to enhance teaching and learning using any available technology. 
 
Educational Technologists are educators, usually with strong backgrounds as classroom teachers, and who work as professional developers in schools, providing resources, support, collaborative teaching, and direct support to students to help them learn, experience, and create. My chief responsibility at our school is to help students and teachers use all of the resources at our disposal - especially digital technology - to enhance learning and teaching.
 
I also have the administrative responsibilities of managing our school-based technology resources, and liaising between the Department of Information Services and Yorktown High School. It's my pleasure to be a support to your learning, and I'm happy to answer any questions I can.
 
This is an exciting and challenging time in Arlington, as we update systems and expand our cadre of resources, including the county-wide Personalized Digital Learning initiative. I encourage you, whenever you have technology-related questions, to visit this site and read the information I post thoroughly. I will try to keep the information on this site as current as possible, including giving you clear directions on how to get to the right support people when you need help.
 
As a teacher, I am dedicated to the success, authenticity, and growth of every student at Yorktown. I'm very happy to help however and whenever I can.
 
Cheers,
 
MrReevesSignature  
 
Mr. Reeves
Instructional Technology Coordinator
