John Nadler
Eighth Grade ELA
North Syracuse Junior High
North Syracuse Central School District

Congratulations to our October 2016 Featured Teacher John Nadler. John works for North Syracuse Central School at North Syracuse Junior High School. He has taught eighth grade English at the junior high for 19 years. He also is the senior advisor for the school's award-winning tech crew, 4D Productions.

What are some of the innovative ways that John integrates technology into his curriculum?

Over the years, John has used several technological tools to supplement his curriculum. He has used his class web page, Twitter, RemindEdmodo, and everything in-between. Currently, John has been a pioneer for using Google Apps for Education in his district. Students don't just get exposed to the applications -- they learn the ins and outs of them to enhance their own efficiency and work output. In January, he piloted the use of Chromebooks with his five ELA classes, and this year his students have the pleasure of being a 1:1 classroom. Using Google Classroom as a hub, students will consistently be able to track their progress and revise work easily. Several of his classes participated in writing highly detailed original novels over a three-week period. Working together, and using GAFE, students churned out novels that were interesting, action packed, and better than any previous year's work. Some novels were over 100 pages long! Read more!
