ERMS Technology Champs 2015
2015 ERMS Technology Champs

Brian Shaver
teaches tech lab and gifted seminar at ERMS.  He has been an educator for 16 years at Eagle Ridge Middle School.  Brian is a technology champ because of his depth of understanding of how to engage students and enhance their learning by using various technologies in his curriculum. He excels at utilizing technology as a tool to create individualized experiences to support his students’ academic growth. Students in his classroom have an opportunity to use computers in a variety of learning experiences including robotics, video game design, aerospace engineering, and architecture. Brian is a life-long learner who actively seeks opportunities to learn and share new information and strategies with colleagues. His fellow related arts teachers rely on him for technology answers and support.  Additionally, Brian dedicates a portion of his time to our school’s afterschool STEM Club in which students learn about emerging technologies such as solar power and magnetic levitation. He has contributed many hours updating the tech lab with the latest software and integrating the robotics program this year at ERMS.  He is an exemplar technology champ.

Doug Dent teaches Language Arts at ERMS.  He has been an educator for 9 years here at Eagle Ridge Middle School.  Doug is a technology champ because of his depth of understanding of how to engage students and enhance learning into the curriculum by using technology.  Just by using a projector and a SMART board he can conduct onscreen investigations and demonstrate concepts far more easily than with just words and arm-waving.  Doug is constantly creating SMART board lessons to use with his students and to share with his colleagues.  When his fellow 7th grade teachers need help they turn to him for technology answers and support.  Students in his classroom have an opportunity to use computers, clickers, and a SMART board in a variety of learning experiences on a daily basis.  That is why Doug Dent is our technology champ.
