About

Micah Shippee, PhD is an innovative ‘ideas’ person who thinks outside the box. Micah wears many hats as a 7th grade Social Studies teacher and turnkey technology trainer. He regularly explores ways to improve motivation in the classroom and leverages emergent technology to achieve educational goals. Very early in his career Micah discovered the secret to increased student motivation, a more productive learning environment, a better fit for future job preparedness, all while achieving his mandated content objectives and goals… the secret? Effective and Efficient Technology Integration.

Micah believes: The training and development of present and future educational practitioners is a key factor in developing citizenship for our increasingly global community. Teaching professionals place great value on collaboration with their colleagues as a means to achieve positive professional growth. In an age of increasingly ubiquitous communication/social technology, we should be looking to create collaborative and reflective atmospheres for teaching professionals available anytime, anywhere. As mentors, trainers, colleagues, and instructors we need to work towards preparing educational practitioners to meet the needs of all of their students by fostering an environment of open exchange focused on sharing experiential knowledge, best practices, and advocating for individual ownership in professional growth.
