Technology has made it possible to communicate with one another instantly over long distances. This has opened up exciting opportunities for teachers to get “real time” support in their classrooms when and where they want it. Join the Haring Center for its fall Develop, Understand, Build Talk and learn about research at the Center that examines the use of various forms of technology to change the way teachers and coaches work together in the classroom and beyond.
Kathleen Artman Meeker, assistant professor of early childhood special education at UW, will present talks at 9:10 a.m. and 12:40 p.m. Meeker has worked extensively with teachers around preventing challenging behavior and promoting young children’s social-emotional development. She is particularly interested in ways of designing efficient and effective professional development. Meeker has been active in a number of educational roles throughout her career: childcare assistant, special educator, supervisor, coach, researcher, and faculty member. She has designed professional development materials for military childcare and collaborated with the Head Start National Center on Quality Teaching and Learning (NCQTL) to design and deliver professional development that supports coaches in Head Start classrooms.
