MTT043| Seesaw in the Classroom - Megan Madden
It’s so great when each of your students have their own devices. But what happens when you have 31 student projects on 31 devices? It means a lot of time on the Teacher collecting, grading, distributing, and managing both the projects and the devices. Join us today as we speak with Megan Madden, a 3rd Grade Teacher from California. Megan shares with us why Seesaw works so well for her and her classroom. Also, listen in to how much the parents love it as well. One more thing, this episode will be a short series on Seesaw. This is the “Seesaw in the Classroom” episode, our next one coming up will be “Seesaw with Distance Learning”, so be sure to subscribe to our podcast because you don’t want to miss that one!
Megan Madden is a Bay Area native and enjoys learning, community, and creating new ways to engage and excite my students. She attended Saint Mary’s College of California and earned my B.A in English Literature and minored in Theatre Arts. She continued at Saint Mary’s and went on to earn my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. Megan began her teaching career at a Montessori Elementary School in Pleasanton, CA where she learned the art of hands on exploration and differentiation. She then transitioned into the traditional classroom and continued to teach at a Catholic School in the Oakland Diocese. Megan’s desire to continue offering my students a tailored learning experience and an environment prepared for learning and exploring and began incorporating technology in order to balance the needs of her students within the constraints of the traditional classroom. She enjoyed watching her students thrive in this blended learning environment and was inspired to go back to school to earn her Masters in 21st Century Learning and Technology from Brandman University. Megan has a passion for integrating technology into her pedagogy and hopes to inspire others to explore new ways to teach and make an impact on students everywhere.
