WeLearn Teacher Spotlight: Meet Mr. Scott Wohlers, a fifth-grade teacher at Mary Dryden Elementary!
Mr. Scott Wohlers uses technology to create authentic learning experiences for his students. Whether he is using Scratch, Class Dojo, Class Craft, Microsoft Photos or even Khan Academy, Scott’s students are always engaged in higher-order thinking.
Recently, a film crew documented Scott’s students using Microsoft Photos to describe measurement and powers of 10’s, 100’s, and 1000’s. Scott’s students shared their math thinking and began teaching each other different ways to solve problems. The shared learning went viral in the classroom and students who formerly struggled to be involved in conversations or math communities are now vocal in sharing how they are learning.
This year, Scott is doing even more with computer science in his classroom as he is actively involved in the district’s Computer Science for All initiative, which strives to integrate computer science standards across all grade levels and content areas.
To hear all about the exciting ways Scott is using technology in the classroom, check out his recent interview on the SPS Digital Learning Hour Podcast:
