My name is Jason Schmidt, and I have been teaching elementary school since 2004. I currently teach grades 3 and 4 at a small Lutheran school in Omaha, Nebraska. I consider myself a Constructivist teacher who tries to put tools into students hands that allow them to take responsibility for their own learning. My professional interests include education technology, Multiple Intelligences, inquiry-based science instruction, and problem-based learning.
Right now I am working on my Master’s degree in secondary education with a concentration in education technology from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Assuming I complete all my coursework on time, I will graduate in the spring of 2012. Besides my Master’s degree work, I am also a SMART Notebook Certified Trainer.
Because of my broad interests, this blog will cover a wide variety of educational topics. It is for my own personal reflection and growth, but I hope that other people might find the things I share here useful, too.
