Carolyn Cooper- Technology Coordinator

Mt. Bethel is fortunate enough to have a technology coordinator. Over 200 iPads are being used each and every day in the classrooms, music, art, STEM, and the Learning Commons for individualized instruction and project based learning. Carolyn Cooper ensures our iPads are updated with the proper apps and tools so that teachers and students can use them effectively in the classroom. Our teachers and students use many different online tools throughout the day. Carolyn keeps the student databases updated for our software subscriptions to those programs. By maintaining the subscriptions, the burden is taken off the classroom teacher so that they can focus on instruction. In addition, she also troubleshoots and resolves technology glitches so teachers can keep our students engaged and get back to instruction as quickly as possible. Carolyn also helps the administration prepare for online high stakes testing, publishes the Buccaneer Bytes Tech Blog and assists in production of the morning announcement broadcast. Carolyn truly makes an impact on Mt. Bethel and instruction. Follow her Buccaneer Bytes blog for monthly technology information, tips, and updates:
