Connected Educator Interview: Meet Mrs. Patti Patrick
On July 8th,
2015 I had the opportunity to interview Patti Patrick, experienced teacher,
administrator, and connected educator. Patti has been a high school science
teacher, technology coordinator for Fresno Unified School District,
instructional designer, and adjunct professor at Fresno Pacific University. He dedicates part of
her professional career to work with students at the Center for Online Learning at Fresno Pacific
University. Patti describes a connected educator as someone who has built a
platform on different social media outlets as well as someone who connects with
other educators online over a variety of topics. In her own words, technology
does not replace the teacher but rather gives students the ability to consume,
create, and disseminate information and as she states: “to do things that would not be possible without technology”.
Patti connects with educators and the community through Linkedin, Twitter, and Moodle communities. The questions that Mrs. Patrick answered for Educator Talk are embedded in the video.
