Clemencia Acevedo ’13 (Adolescence Special Education with Social Studies Extension), a teacher at the Urban Science Academy in the Bronx, received the 2017 Excellence in School Technology Award from the New York City Department of Education. The award recognized Clemencia for her excellent use of technology in the classroom. Follow her on Twitter @MsClemenAcevedo to see examples of technology integration, such as using Google Docs for peer editing and engaging students on Twitter during field trips.

Additionally, Clemencia develops and leads professional development workshops for teachers in technology. She gave a workshop to NYCDOE educators at the SoHo Apple store this year focusing on how she uses technology to reach parents and community members. Read her blog post about that event.

This spring, Greg Borman, Director of Science, and Tom John, Science Instructional Specialist – Urban Advantage Liaison, from the NYCDOE Department of STEM requested a visit to Clemencia’s classroom to see an example of integrating technology in classrooms.
