Speaker: Gina Marcel and Giurissa Felix

The School at Columbia University

Grades 1-12

Sold OutThis workshop will discuss various approaches using multimedia like the SMARTBoard and iPads in the classroom. These strategies can be used in every discipline and grade level. We will be discussing customizable techniques developed for Lower, Middle and Upper School Humanities courses. This workshop is designed to give interdisciplinary, cross-divisional lessons for the teacher wishing to devise simple solutions to integrate technology into the classroom. There will be a focused discussion on incorporating all learning styles (kinetic, visual, auditory) when creating lessons with technology. Participants will come away with materials and a unique perspective for dealing with the demands of teaching in this age of technology. All levels of expertise are welcome.
Many examples of successful lessons using both of these classroom tools will be available. Pre-knowledge is unnecessary.
Gina Marcel is the K-2 Educational Technologist at The School at Columbia University. Some of her responsibilities include teaching, integrating technology into the curriculum and training teachers on the many valuable uses of technology in the classroom. She has 21 years educational technology experience with 11 years in the New York City Independent Schools. As the former Director of Technology at the Browning School, she functioned as Administrator, Computer Department Chair, Network Administrator, integrator, teacher, and purchaser of all technology equipment. But she quickly found that she most enjoyed teaching and technology integration. Now she focuses on these areas of expertise.

Giurissa A. Félix teaches Spanish in all three divisions at The Browning School. In her desire to teach captivating and inspiring lessons in Spanish Language and Literature courses, Giurissa found that students responded positively when many different sensory cues were used. During the planning stages of her lessons, she began to incorporate more technology. As a constant pro-active presence in the technology department, Giurissa developed many ideas on teaching using all kinds of multimedia and serves as the US Division Technology Leader. To further her student’s interests, Giurissa introduced a new literature course to impart some of the ideas she studies in her Ph.D program at the City University of New York's Graduate School and University Center.
