So what’s up with the whole “Tiara” thing?(No, this isn’t some off-shoot of “Toddlers & Tiaras”. It’s a site for you, an educational/instructional technologist)
I’ll tell you… This site is an extension of my @edtechdiva persona, of which I’ve used mainly for Twitter for about 5 years. As the “Edtechdiva”, tiaras are much more sparkly than any old hat… See?
With that said, my name is Elena Tobin. I have been an educator for 14 years. During this time, I have worn many “tiaras”! My degree is in Special Education, with a Master’s in Educational Technology. I have worked on all levels, including teaching 3-year olds!
- Life Skills teacher
- Learning Support
- Assistive Technology Consultant – (for 23 school districts!)
- Educational Technology Coordinator
- and… most current and by far THE best – Instructional Technology Coordinator K-12
Being in just one school district, is much better to manage – I still wear many “tiaras”, but I know students and teachers by name!
