I believe there are tremendous opportunities to leverage technology that are not currently being utilized by the Palm Beach County School Board
. As a math tutor, I work with students from all different types of schools (e.g., public, private, online, traditional, middle schools, high schools, colleges, distance learning, etc.
), so I can assimilate best practices into effective programs that will maximize student outcomes.
If elected to the School Board, I would propose a pilot program to implement Khan Academy into some of our district schools. Additionally, I would implement pilot programs using services such as MyMathLab.com, Aleks.com, and WebAssign.net to administer and grade math and science homework, allowing teachers more time to focus on student development.
