EdTech Consult for Teachers
Are you a teacher who is trying to integrate digital literacy into your classroom but aren't sure where to begin? Are you looking for ways to engage and empower your students using technology? Do you want your students to create multimedia projects? I'm here to help!
I am imagining a couple of ways this can work:
-We can discuss your teaching environment, goals, challenges and resources available to you. I will offer concrete suggestions on how you can integrate technology into your practice, as well as suggestions for edtech tools to try.
-We can also go through one of your lesson plans or assignments, and I will offer suggestions on how you can integrate an edtech tool/app into it. I will also provide resources to help support you using that tool.
Sessions can take place in person, via Skype or Google, or back/forth email - whatever your preference.

About Merisenda Alatorre
I have a background in multimedia journalism and education. I'm a former elementary school educator, and currently work in public media as a digital video producer. I'm extremely passionate about ...the intersection of education, technology, and access. I would like to help create a world where technology empowers all users with the resources and tools to achieve their higher and innermost potential. My experience in education, multimedia journalism, and design thinking has equipped me with the skills to be an innovative and adaptive leader who can approach problems from multiple perspectives. I seek other like-minded individuals who are ready to change the world. My skills include video production/editing, building websites, and teaching/tutoring. I'm a first-generation college student who has graduated from elite universities (University of Southern California, Harvard) - so I believe I have some insights and experience on navigating complex systems, such as financial aid and the school admissions process. I'm also an experienced crocheter and fluent in Spanish. I love animals, arts and crafts, discovering new food, and traveling. I'm also super obsessed with rainbows and unicorns. I'm really into the spiritual and otherworldly things that make our life more meaningful and interesting. Mostly, I'm a lifelong learner and want to make the most of the experiences and opportunities available to me. show moreOpen to other proposals
