Robert Jost

In my nearly four decades as a public school educator, I have had the opportunity to teach all of the elementary grades from Kindergarten through Grade Six. My passion has always been to integrate available technology into my classroom. For many years, I had a fully operational amateur radio station and shortwave broadcast receiver in my classroom. When the World Wide Web exploded on the scene in the mid-90's, I quickly recognized the potential that the world wide web offered to support, enrich and enhance my classroom curriculum. My primary focus since 1995 has been on integrating internet/web technology into the elementary classroom curriculum.

Professional Experience: After twenty five years in the classroom, I served for four years as the Director of Technology Integration at the Fresno Pacific University Center for Professional Development. In this position, I developed professional development workshops and online courses for both the local educational community as well as the broader online community. I have been teaching online courses since 1997. In 2001, I returned to the public education system. I am currently the computer lab teacher / technology specialist at Manchester GATE Elementary School in Fresno, California. In this position, I work with over 730 second through sixth grade students each week in the computer lab. I also work closely with my teaching colleagues to develop strategies and resources that support the integration of technology into their classroom curriculum
