Kassie Sweeney Hi parents and students! I was born and raised in Texas but moved to Georgia in 2009. I graduated from Kennesaw State University in 2012 with my bachelor's in elementary education. I later decided to go back to school to get my master's in Instructional Technology. I attended Valdosta State University online and graduated with my master's in 2017. Over the years, I have also received endorsements in middle grades math, reading, and language arts and I also received my reading endorsement for all grades. From 2013-2018, I taught fifth grade in Alpharetta before I got the opportunity to join the Big Creek family in 2018. When I'm not at school I enjoy hiking with my dog Seuss, going out on the lake with my friends and family, and cooking at home. I can't wait for another great year at Big Creek! 710213 email@example.com
The role of instructional technology at Big Creek Elementary is to enhance students' opportunities for creative exploration and support a deeper understanding of academic content in authentic ways.
All classrooms are equipped with 10 chromebooks for student use with additional chromebook and iPad carts available when needed. Additionally, every classroom has a ClearTouch interactive panel for direct interaction with and manipulation of presentations and classroom material. Big Creek Elementary also possesses equipment and materials for coding, robotics, green screen, 3D printing, and movie-making.
Below are examples of some of the instructional technology tools available to students and teachers to enhance creativity, critical thinking, flexible learning, immediate feedback and student agency in learning.
