Adam Pizzi, Master Technology Teacher (grades 6 – 12) in the Westfield Public Schools, was a speaker at the NJ Educational Computing Cooperative’s (NJECC) final meeting of the school year held at Montclair State University. At the meeting, where Instructional Technologists came together to share best practices and highlights from the 2013-14 school year, Pizzi presented what the Westfield Public Schools accomplished. He described how he and K-5 Master Technology Teacher, Jeanine Gottko, supported the district’s launch of a new website, Google Apps, various professional development offerings, and a new Summer Institute for teachers. He explained the student centered learning model that guides the district’s technology initiatives.
"As one of Westfield's instructional technologists, I was honored to address a group of educational leaders and teachers at NJECC on how our district is meeting the challenges of 21st century teaching and learning, and to summarize our accomplishments and milestones," stated Pizzi.
