San Domenico's Dominican values of Study and Reflection are integral to our annual technology conference iTeach.
|Ryan Hopper and Melissa Yazzolino - iTeach 2014|
Lower School Technology Facilitator Ryan Hopper presented several sessions during the three day conference. "Thanks for putting on the event" he said, "I'm exhausted but grew as a presenter, speaker, facilitator and general tech enthusiast!"

Our teacher panel centered on the SAMR Model. Led by Baird in conversation SD teachers explored how they use technology to redefine their educational processes and goals. Developed by Ruben R. Puentedura, the SAMR model looks at how different uses of technology in learning can substitute for traditional teaching tools and methods; augment the lessons with improvements; modify tasks students are expected to do; and eventually to redefine the tasks and learning processes.
San Domenico School Director of Religious Studies Mirza Kahn produced a short video to provide you with some additional insight to the power of iTeach. Please let us know if you are interested in attending iTeach 2015. We'd love to see you there!
