Jennifer Woody
3rd Grade Teacher
Freemont Elementary School 
East Syracuse Minoa Schools

Congratulations to our February 2016 Featured Teacher, Jennifer Woody. Jen teaches Grade 3 at Fremont Elementary School in the East Syracuse Minoa Central School District. She is in her tenth year at ESM and has been a teacher for 11 years.

What are some of the innovative ways that Jennifer integrates technology into her curriculum?
At the beginning of the 2015-2016 school year, the East Syracuse Minoa Central School District entered the first phase of a 1:1 Chromebook initiative. The infusion of this technology, which provided Jen with a class set of Chromebooks and Google accounts for her students, is connected to the implementation of the ESM Technology Integration and Investment Plan.

With the access to this technology, Jen and her students have been able to embrace Google Apps for Education (GAFE) as an integral part of the school day to be used in all classroom subject areas. The students in this 3rd grade class use their Google accounts to access assignments through Google Classroom. These assignments include providing the students writing prompts using Google Docs for an ELA activity. During a social studies unit, students researched holidays around the world and created Google Slide presentations to share their learning. The students have used Google Sheets when working on sequencing and graphing during their math lessons. Google Forms has been utilized for text-based evidence activities and vocabulary. To round out her use of the Google suite of tools, Jen has her students use Google Drawings to create graphic organizers.. [more... ]
