 I came to Chestnut Hill College because I was given
 the opportunity to complete the Certification process

 created from classes at Arcadia, Chestnut Hill College
 and my professional job as Coach at Penn Wood
 Middle School.

 There are many goals in creating this portfolio. I am
  using it as my presentation for candidacy as an
  Instructional Technology Specialist, and I have used it
  in my job as a coach to justify what I have done to work
  in that position. It is also a live website that I plan on
  continually using to serve as a live and up to date
  online resume.
 These are some of the highlights I feel best exemplify
  what I have learned (and continue to learn) as an
  Instructional Technology Coach.
 Instrumental Member of EETT Grant team in selecting
 software, leading the installation team for our
 Promethean Boards and Projectors as well as training
 staff members on how to use them.

 Audacity is a free audio recorder and editor
 It is an excellent tool for recording students in a variety
  of ways and it is very easy for them to learn to use on
  their own.

 As one of the things I had
  to do in getting ready for
  teaching ActiveInspire to
  my staff was place the
  faculty in the best setting
  possible for them to learn.
 I utilized a modified
  version of the Hooper and
  Rieber Scale in which they
  talk about 5 levels of
  Technology Integration.

Knowing the Content
• Independent Study on Networking at
  Chestnut Hill College.
 As part of my Master’s work at Arcadia I had to work
  collaboratively on-line with other students creating
  different plans and assignments. One of the plans we
  created involved us creating a technology plan that
  showed technology integration for each lesson.
