Mrs. Jami Wilkinson
Hello, I am Jami Wilkinson and I am the 5th grade Social Studies-Technology Teacher. I earned my Bachelors Degree from Stephen F. Austin State University and I am currently working on a Masters of Educational Technology Leadership from Texas A&M Commerce. I have been in the Wills Point School District since 2004 as a an instructional and library aide, this is my third year as a teacher.
It is an exciting time to be an educator with so many resources available to provide a well rounded educational experience that will prepare students for the future. Educational technology is an integral part of 21st-century education that promotes a successful learning environment and I will be integrating technology within the Social Studies curriculum where students will learn technology skills they will use to demonstrate knowledge of the subject. Students will be learning skills that are needed as they progress through their educational career and possibly their professions.
“Pedagogy is the driver, technology is the accelerator.” --Unknown
This quote accurately describes a successful learning environment where learning is the vehicle and students are driving by taking ownership of learning when utilizing the technological resources available that will accelerate their learning and mastery of a concept. Educators are the facilitators that provide the guidance toward their educational destination.
