Matt Stricklen

I am the product of multiple generations of teaching and of more great than not so great public school teachers. I resisted the call for sometime, but in 2013, I completed my Master’s Degree through the Teaching Residency Program for Critical Shortage Areas at Texas State University. My continuing pursuit of strategies and methods to engage with students has drawn my attention to 21st Century technologies including GIS, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Citizen Science and the Maker Movement. I recently achieved Level 1 status as a Google Certified Educator. I am seeking experiences to teach and learn with peers across AISD and beyond.The goal of using these technologies must be to reduce barriers to science literacy and to convince young people that scientific endeavors present opportunity and value for them. For some highlights on how these tools have been used in my classroom, please visit these links: https://arcg.is/1vzP8u
