About Mrs. Elizabeth Calderwood

<div style="">** Edmodo Certified Trainer**</div><div style=""><br style=""></div>I became a teacher in order to share my love for learning and science with young eager minds.<div style=""><br style=""></div><div style=""><span style="">I am a 7th grade science teacher and technology resource teacher at Southern Regional Middle School in Manahawkin, NJ.  I have been teaching for 12 years and for the last four years have been focusing on the effective use of educational technology in the classroom. In December 2013, I became an Edmodo Certified Trainer and Edmodo Ambassador in the first cohort.  In 2014, I became the co-organizer of </span><a href="http://www.teachmeetnj.com/" style="">TeachMeetNJ</a> (www,teachmeetnj.com)<span style=""> – a free educational technology un-conference for teachers and administrators.  Un-conferences throw away the formalities of traditional conferences so true learning and collaborating can happen.  Also in 2014, I became an organizer for a regional conference called NJ/PAECET2 (www.njpaecet2.org).  ECET2 (Elevating and Celebrating Effective Teaching and Teachers) is a conference that </span>provides a forum for exceptional teachers to learn from one another and to celebrate the teaching profession in general.</div><div style=""><span style=""><br style=""></span></div><div style=""><span style="">I enjoy presenting and sharing the lessons that I have learned about working in a limited technology environment (with the help of Edmodo - of course) and on other various educational technology topics.  I have presented on these topics at EdmodoCon 2013, the NJ Science Teachers Convention 2014, and as an ISTE Live 2014 Presenter.  I have also received different forms of recognition from my district for my efforts and passion for sharing with my colleagues.  In 2013 I received the district nomination for NJ State Teacher of the Year and as the 2014 nominee for the Princeton Distinguished Educators Award.</span></div><div style=""><span style=""><br style=""></span></div><div style=""><span style="">Follow me: @liz1544</span></div><div style=""><span style="">About Me: </span>http://about.me/liz.calderwood</div><div style="">My Blog (which gets updated sporadically): http://ecalderwood.edublogs.org/</div>
