I’m Yoni Fine. I teach high school English and journalism. I’m in year 7, which I hear is kind of important (in a “make or break” way). Ever since I did my master’s research on best practices using laptops in a 1:1 classroom (which is what my classroom was at that point, and for four of my first years of teaching), I’ve been moderately obsessed with seeking out and experimenting with technology in my classroom.
Now that I’m in a conventional classroom (I’m the only one with a laptop), this experimentation is a little slower, but thrilling nonetheless. I’m simply 100% convinced that the technologies that can help kids learn (and help me teach) are out there. I just need to find them and find the right way to use them.
