Agent Hedreich Nichols (Teaching Technology)

Your lesson, should you choose to accept it, is to help your students, and fellow teachers, use technology in a mindful and transformative way in the classroom. The special agent assigned to help you with this task is Hedreich Nichols, middle school technology teacher in Arlington, Texas.

 

In this episode we discuss:

  • Being a teacher lead and mentoring other teachers around technology
  • Why she wants to help teachers find and vet apps
  • What to say to those who reject technology in classes
  • Her favorite unit: students using social media to effect real world change
  • Teaching students about building personal brands
  • Educating other teachers about diversity
  • Being "crotchety" (modeling good and bad moods; making family time explicit to students)
  • Her dream school: multi-grade project-based learning focusing on interests and strengths
