Setlife is nothing is not highly variable. As a studio teacher, it takes creativity and flexibility to support students learning on the go. Technology, in many ways, makes it easier than ever to make a seamless transition from the home classroom to the classroom on set. Here are some ways my students and I have used technology in our "classroom" on set and even on location:
- Supplemental Learning: Sometimes students are expected to learn new material and there just is not much support available from the text and regular teacher. (After all, he/she is teaching when we are in class too!) So when we come to challenging content, I frequently look for instructional videos on YouTube/TeacherTube or Khan Academy. It's amazing how much is out there! I have links for these and other educational apps on a Symbaloo page linked from this website under Studio Teaching.

So wherever a job takes me, I'm thankful to have technology to make students' jobs easier and more fun and engaging. Like on location at...
Golden Gate Park
And so many more. I'm excited to see what adventures await in 2016!
