My name isAmber Painter and I am a Kindergarten teacher for the Santa Rita Union SchoolDistrict. Common Core Standardsare ever so present in our classrooms and the need for digital presence isbecoming clear. I believe thatthere are a few fundamental reasons why technology is important ineducation. Having a positivedigital presence can deepen our understanding of the world around us andprovide us the opportunity to learn outside of the typical classroomenvironment. Technology alsoallows for individual pacing and sequencing when it comes to learning.Sometimes in a classroom students are given a lot of information at one time,but if they are able to access those same materials at home then they are ableto go back and review materials they may not have understood the first timearound in the classroom. It isimportant that we teach our students at a young age the importance of apositive digital presence so they make good choices once they join socialmedia. I have created this about.me page to show my students the importance ofmaintaining a positive digital presence.
