This is an interview with Ms. Moncrieff, one of our great 8th grade math teachers:

Q: How do you use technology in your classroom?
A:I use my computer to write my lesson plans, check e-mails,etc...but my BIGGEST addition this year is my Promethean board. I use this tool almost every day! I teach with it; I no longer use dry erase boards much.

Q:What technology do you use?
A:Promethean boards!!!

Q:Do you let your students use technology?
A:Unfortunately, because of how my Promethean board is in my room (not mounted on a wall or projector in the ceiling) my board is extra sensitive, and I don't allow students to use it.

Q:Does technology help your teaching?
A:I definately think teaching with the Promethean board adds extra interest for the students, and hopefully, they listen and learn that little bit extra. As a result...

Q:Does the technology you use help your students?
A:Hopefully, because the board increases students' listening and participation in class, it has transformed their ability to learn.

We want to thank Ms.Moncrieff for the time she sacrificed from her busy schedule to talk to us.

This is the interview with Mrs. Hartnett, our wonderful 8th grade language arts teacher, gracious host of the Sixceed program!

Q:How do you use technology in your classroom?
A:Blog (which is used to record homework assignments and general information), scribes, projects, Sixceed, word processing, and e-mail.

Q:What technology do you use?
A:Computers, LCD projectors, student laptops, imovies, podcasts.

Q:Do you let your students use technology?
A:Yes, it is encouraged.

Q:Does technology help your teaching?
A:Yes.

Q:Does the technology you use help your students?
A:It depends on the individual and effort put into the assignment.

We want to thank Mrs.Hartnett for the time she sacrificed from her busy schedule to talk to us.
