Goals as President of SMT
As President of the School Media Technology Division, I would like to continue to expand the SMTís contributions, particularly collaboration between higher education faculty and K-12 practitioners in the areas of research and applied practice. In addition to research and publications, examples of these contributions include modeling of best practices, webinar offerings, development and maintenance of a resource repository, and policy briefs. Another one of my goals as SMT President is to grow our enrollment by reaching out to various state organizations and K-12 practitioners. Lastly, I would like to work collaboratively with other AECT divisions to best serve our stakeholders.
