Kellie WilksInstructional Technology CoordinatorI attended UTPB earning my BA in history in 1997 and later received my MA in Educational Technology from Pepperdine University. I attended Pepperdine University in person and met with classmates and instructors online. While receiving my MA in Educational Technology I learned that the experience of learning, leadership and teamwork can happen face to face or virtually with email and over the internet with newsgroups or virtual classrooms. Knowledge management is the key to being successful in today's vast world of information. Knowing everything is impossible, but having the knowledge of where or who to go to is essential.
I began teaching in 1997 in Midland ISD before becoming a Technology Specialist at ECISD in 2005.
"All learning pivots on who we think we are, and who we see ourselves as capable of becoming.” Frank Smith"...if we teach today's students as we taught yesterday's, we rob them of tomorrow." John Dewey
The best learning takes place when the learner is in charge of his or her learning. Therefore when taking on learning "a computer program" take charge and have fun. Lasting learning happens when we make mistakes, so make mistakes and correct those mistakes however often they may happen.
“Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education.” John F. Kennedy
