The Rural School Collaborative recently shared an interview with SDIL teacher Jeff Schneider. He talks about his long-term connection to teaching and how he came to join SDIL.
Jeff, aka The Digital Desperado, embraces technology in teaching and helps students use online and digital tools to solve problems. Jeff brings real-world problems to the classroom, problems that kids can to relate to. Here’s just one example that is cited in the interview.
Q: Can you give an example of the “hands on” approach to learning that utilizes technology?
A: For example, the Monday following the New England Patriots controversy (the infamous deflated ball accusation), the 9th grade Physical Science classes tested how ‘bouncy’ (or not) a deflated ball was. They downloaded a slow motion app for their phones to get a more accurate measure of the height of the bounce.
SDIL and PAST Foundation are proud of all our staff and teachers. Jeff is certainly a great example of the kind of dedication they all bring to classrooms and schools every day.
