Description

Jason Niedermeyer began his career as a biology and English Teacher with a single goal: to make students love David Attenborough as much as he did. What he didn’t know was that in his quest to develop the ideal graphic organizer for a single video, he would watch his practices go through a significant evolution. In this presentation you will hear about the effective use of rudimentary technology (videos and video clips), the use of iMovie to create focused video splices, Flip video cameras to engage students in enhanced learning, and Google sites to tie it all together. Jason will also give you some tips to find $$$ to bring technology into your classroom. (Grades: High School)

Jason Niedermeyer is a biology and English teacher at South Salem high school in Salem. Currently he teaches IB biology and Animal Behavior, though he has taught Read 180, freshman English (Basic through Honors), and biology/life science. A football and golf coach for several years, Jason now moonlights as a behavioral researcher and author (apparently he just gets geekier with age).
