Two Eden Prairie Teachers Receive Award for Leadership & Innovation
Eden Prairie teachers Brent Bovitz and Megan Skogstad will receive Exceptional Teacher Awards at the TIES Educational Technology Conference in December.
According to a school district press release, TIES is a Minnesota education technology collaborative, and Bovitz and Skogstad were chosen for the awards based on examples of their leadership, innovation, integration of technology and evidence of strategies impacting student learning and engagement.
Bovitz teaches sixth grade at Cedar Ridge Elementary, while Skogstad is a fourth grade Mosaic teacher at Forest Hills Elementary. Here’s what the release had to say about each of the teachers’ efforts to advance technology in the classroom.
“Brent’s students are constantly challenged when Brent works with them to collaborate on projects using online research tools, web clips, and camera and video tools. Brent has also led the implementation of Schoology, an online classroom management platform that improves learning and increases access to curriculum, within Cedar Ridge.”
“In her classroom, which consists of all highly gifted students, Megan teaches 21st century skills to ensure her students are successful in the areas of collaboration, critical thinking, creativity and communication. Megan encourages her students to take their learning deeper by leveraging the use of technology. Students are continuously using iPad Apps, Chromebooks and MacBooks to collect information, collaborate with one another on shared projects, produce examples of their learning, and present their expertise to their peers, parents, and teacher.”
