Faculty, Students, and Alumni Present at Computer Using Educators National Conference

At the recent 2017 national conference of Computer Using Educators  (CUE) in Palm Springs, California, College of Education faculty, students, and graduates gave two presentations. One presentation was given by Dr. Stephen Adams, professor and coordinator of the Educational Technology and Media Leadership program, together with three educators who had been students in his course ETEC 529 Educational Technologies in Science, Engineering, and Mathematics. The co-presenters discussed their uses of educational technologies in teaching engineering to youth at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Long Beach as part of a course project. They also discussed how youth learned more about the practices of professional engineers and gave advice for teachers interested in teaching related topics. The co-presenters were:

  • Stephanie Gamache, a teacher librarian at Servite High School (Anaheim), who earned an M.A. in Education, Option in Educational Technology and Media Leadership and a Teacher Librarian Services Credential, both from CSULB.
  • Maria Celis, a teacher at Gabrielino High School (San Gabriel, CA), who earned an M.A. in Education, Option in Educational Technology and Media Leadership from CSULB.
  • Alondra Muraviov, who is a 5th grade teacher at Rio Hondo Elementary (Downey, CA) and a current student in the Curriculum and Instruction Master’s degree program at CSULB.

This project was supported by Fluor, Chevron, and by a grant awarded by the CSU Collaborative for the Advancement of Linked Learning with funding from The James Irvine Foundation.

The other presentation was given by Dr. Lesley Farmer, professor in the Educational Technology and Media Leadership program and coordinator of the Teacher Librarian Services Credential program. Her presentation focused on getting youth college-career ready, emphasizing the role of teacher librarians.  Dr. Farmer also serves as the coordinator for CUE’s Higher Education Learning Network.
