Nevada Ready 21
Professional Development Strategist
Las Vegas, NV
I am a professional development strategist for the Nevada Ready 21 program and am a former high school AP Biology, Chemistry, Video Production, and Student Council teacher and a current professional development strategist! Since my first day on the job at West Prep in Clark County School District, I was always looking for ways to incorporate educational technology into my curriculum. One of the reasons my bosses always helped me fund and outfit my classroom with the latest and greatest EdTech was because I was never afraid of trying out something new. Sometimes my ideas worked, oftentimes they didn't. But "change" never scared me and I kept making tweaks to my ideas, often during passing periods as I got ready for my next class!

Everything did change when my classroom was provided 15 iMac computers to go along with my class set of iPads, Mac laptops, and assortment of video cameras, microphones, tripods, and various video production gear. My classroom looked like a Best Buy!

Using my iPads and iMacs as tools for learning, I experimented with setting up virtual labs with my science students, establishing video editing workflows with my video production students, and exploring online marketing with my student council students. I began making and recording video notes using my favorite iPad app, Doceri, and created something in my classroom that would eventually resemble the "station rotation" blended model.

I was able to leverage my experience with educational technology into my current position as a professional development strategist for the Nevada Ready 21 program. This program provided 1:1 Chromebooks to middle school students at 23 sites throughout the state of Nevada. My favorite part of my job is that I still get to experiment with process and content presentation, but with professional learning opportunities for educators.

I am a Google Certified Trainer and a pro with the Canvas Learning Management System. Read my blog at www.crjustus.com and reach out to me through social media (@crjustus)
