Lakeland Teacher Honored with Technology Award

SHRUB OAK, N.Y. - A longtime science teacher at Lakeland Copper Beech Middle School was recently honored for his innovative uses of instructional technology to enhance learning.

Jasper Fox was given the Pioneer Award as a Distinguished Technology Teacher by the Lower Hudson Regional Information Center.

"Not only are [my students] gaining skills to be successful in their life today and in the future, [they] are also gaining additional 21st century study skills," Fox said in his acceptance speech.

For one assignment this spring, Fox's Earth science students created screen casts that explain concepts such as relative humidity, how to identify minerals and different rock types. By creating the videos, students become experts in their topics.

This year, Fox also started "flipping" his classroom, which meant students engage with content at home and then go to class prepared to learn in a more hands-on style.

Fox makes himself available to students on a continual basis and describes his approach to teaching as "teacher on demand."
