Husband of incredible wife, father of 2 great kids.My name is Jeremy Davis, and I am the Instructional Technology Coordinator for the Anaheim City School District in Orange County, California. For the past three years I was a teacher on special assignment for instructional technology in the Magnolia School District. I am also an Educational Technology Trainer for the Orange County Department of Education, teaching teachers and administrators various classes including the Technology Module of the Tier 1 Administrative Credential program. I have presented for CUE, the Computer Using Educators Conference, at TechEd, at the ILC (Innovative Learning Conference) and for the Discovery Educator Network (United Streaming). I am a STAR educator for Discovery Education, a Google Certified Teacher, a member of CUE and ISTE, and I love teaching technology. I work with MAC OSX, Windows, and Linux. I was a finalist for the Project Tomorrow Innovation in Education Award as High Impact Teacher for Orange County in 2008, and have been named one of "20 to Watch" in Educational Technology for 2008 by the National School Board Association.
Videos have been developed for Macs and Windows, using both paid software like Microsoft Office, and free software like Open Office. Videos have also been developed for many web 2.0 websites, which can be used on any platform.
I have spent over 10 years in the technology and educational fields, and have taught all grades kindergarten through sixth (except 3rd) as a classroom teacher. As a Teacher on Special Assignment, I taught over 1000 K-6 classroom model lessons for teachers with mobile laptop carts. I decided that I should take that experience and develop a curriculum that districts can use to ensure graduating 6th - 8th graders have the technology skills that they need to move on to the next level of schooling.
