Rebecca Bustelos | 2016 LearningMedia Local Digital Innovator
My name is Rebecca Bustelos. I am a 2nd grade teacher at Giffen Elementary School in Albany NY, finishing my 16th year. I love using technology to open doors for my students to activities and exploration of concepts in a more exciting manner. We find information together, plan activities and experiments, and use project based learning to dive deeper into concepts. Technology allows all my students, including those for whom English is their second language, to use visuals to anchor their learning. I am grateful for the content available on pbslearningmedia.org. It provides me with videos and games that that can launch and drive projects and lessons, and allows students a safe place to explore content on their own.
