- Shawn Beard
What do you teach / what is your ‘title’ at school?

How are you involved in education?
- I wear many hats as an educator. I have been involved in education since 1996. Currently I serve as the Director of Career Tech and Virtual Learning at Sand Springs Schools. I also serve as a district Professional Development Trainer. In my spare time/side job, I provide training to districts in Google Apps as a Google for Education Certified Trainer.
What does your ideal school or classroom look like?
- My ideal classroom would be an open concept with no desks in rows. Students would be able to work in groups, but still have the ability to move about freely. Wifi would be available, as they would be using mobile devices for research and to produce work. Students would have the ability to engage with technology as a learning tool, but would also be expected to teach others using technology.
