About the Classroom Technology Institute (CTI)
In collaboration with the School of Education, CTI offers graduate level courses each summer session. Courses teach effective, creative, and appropriate ways to integrate technology into the K-12 curriculum. Courses are hands-on in the computer labs; however, objectives go beyond the technology itself to emphasize instruction and integration. Classes cover such topics as enhancing instruction using emerging technologies, integrating technology into the curriculum, evaluating the benefits of software applications, and understanding the impact of technology on teaching and learning.
In the past, we have offered the following courses:
"Using Technology to Teach a Variety of Learners"
"Using Online Tools to Design Effective Assessment"
"Learning Management Systems in the K - 12 Classroom"
"Creating a Digital Learning Space"
"Creating an Active Learning Environment"
"Basics of 3D Printing"
"Strategies for Improving Classroom communication and Workflow"
"Beyond the Basics of 3D Printing"
CTI courses are listed on the schedule of classes under Education Interdisciplinary.
The CTI is part of the Center for Innovation in Education at New Paltz (CIE@NP). The CIE@NP's mission is to advance collaboration, enrich curriculum, and enhance clinical practice across all levels of learning. To learn more, visit the https://www.newpaltz.edu/schoolofed-dev/cie/.

I am a technology integration specialist in the Wappingers Central School District, where I coordinate smart classroom and distance learning projects, and planning and budget development. I am also involved with video conferencing and mobile computer labs. I was principal at Ulster BOCES Academic Summer School and an instructional curriculum specialist with both Dutchess and Ulster County BOCES. I am a New York State Association for Computers and Technologies board member and assist NYSCATE with the Hudson Valley Regional Conference.
As social studies and computer sciences teacher, I was selected twice as a Google model teacher and chosen from the Northeast USA to attend the Google Teacher Academy. I am the Director of K-12 Instruction and Technology at Chester Union Free School District. I also worked as a computer programmer and technician for over twelve years with the IBM Corporation. My focus is on having teachers create useful lessons to bring back to their schools or add to their teaching portfolios in the summer Classroom Technology Institute classes.
