Annual Pioneer Awards 2017

The LHRIC Pioneer Awards are presented every year to a school district, teacher, and director of technology, from the Westchester, Rockland and Putnam county region.  The awards are in recognition for innovative uses of technology that change teaching and learning.

Date: Friday, May 12, 2017

Site: Edith Macy Conference Center - Briarcliff Manor, New York

Time: 8:30 am - 1:30 pm

Think you’ve got this edtech thing figured out or is it still a work in progress? Technology has the power to connect and change your classroom for the better, but are you using it in the most effective way? Fifth Grade Teacher and Technology Integrator Donnie Piercey will share some humorous thoughts about the “don’ts” of edtech all while discussing ways to help your students become critical thinkers and responsible digital citizens.

Donnie Piercey works in a hybrid role as a fifth grade teacher and district technology integration specialist for Eminence Independent Schools in Kentucky. He is always trying to find new and innovative ways to incorporate technology across the curriculum in order to increase student learning and engagement. You can always check and see what his students are up to by visiting his classroom website, http://www.mrpiercey.com. Donnie has run a 1:1 iPad, Chromebook, and Macbook classroom over the course of his eight year teaching career.
