My name is Beth Still and I teach Social Studies in Scottsbluff, Nebraska.
I decided to call my blog Nebraska Change Agent because I am dedicated to making a difference in education. I am passionate about finding ways to help my students get engaged in learning again. So many of my students have been disengaged for so long that it is hard for them to get back on track. I believe that by creating a safe, welcoming environment it will help my students succeed.
I am a self-proclaimed edtech evangelist! I love finding Web 2.0 tools for my students to use that will help them express their creativity. I believe that by giving students options it empowers them and drives them to succeed. I use Skype and Twitter to help connect my students to the world. I am trying to teach my students how to collaborate using Google Docs. Many of the digital projects they complete are published on the web.
I am a huge proponent of professional networking. I learn new and exciting things from people in my PLN every day. Collaborating with other teachers in my PLN on various projects has been very rewarding.
