Honors for teachers who use technology
Local News – Posted on Thu, Oct. 28, 2004
Three teachers will be honored by Los Altos technology company Rambus and the Krause Center for Innovation at Foothill College on Friday for integrating technology into K-12 classrooms.
Stephanie Lewis, a seventh-and eighth-grade art teacher at Hyde Middle School in the Cupertino Union School District, will receive this year’s 2004 Rambus/KCI Innovation Award. The $5,000 prize recognizes Lewis’ use of custom software to create online portfolios for students in Hyde’s arts programs. Students can use the software to communicate with parents and outside mentors, including local artists. More than 1,000 students will use the technology each semester.
Two teachers from Castro School in the Mountain View-Whisman School District will receive an honorable mention for their work. Janine Walker Gavin, a fourth- and fifth-grade teacher, and Catherine Enos, who teaches second and third grade, worked with their students to develop a Web site on the habitat of the San Francisco Bay. Students corresponded by e-mail with each other and sent notes to their elected officials.
