Instructor: Adam Meesey is the Technology Coordinator for Holy Infant School in Ballwin, MO where he has also taught instructional computer classes from PreK through 8th grade for the past 10 years. He is also the Director of Summer Programs at Forsyth School in Clayton.
Adam knows that students often use computers and tablets just for playing games or exploring on the Internet, but he is striving to change this in his classroom. His teaching focuses on showing students how to use technological tools to better their educational career. Adam also knows that incorporating technology in the classroom can sometimes be daunting because you need to keep a balance of staying several steps ahead of your students while allowing them to explore on their own. He knows that if you introduce technology to your students properly and have a plan in place, you can discover a new, fun way of teaching.
