Timothy Belloff, M.Ed. Instructional Technology Specialist Candidate Chestnut Hill College
Introduction of Candidate My Portfolio Standards Knowing the Content Performances Professionalism
Over the past year I have served as the Instructional Technology Coach at Penn Wood Middle School in the William Penn School District thanks to the Enhancing Education Through Technology Grant. Prior to that I was an American History teacher who loved to use technology in my classroom. Image Courtesy of: http://www.wpsd.k12.pa.us/pwms http://www.wpsd.k12.pa.us/pwms
It was while teaching American History that I decided to obtain my Master’s Degree in Instructional Technology. I completed my degree while attending Arcadia University, graduating with a 4.0 GPA. Image Courtesy of: http://www.arcadia.edu http://www.arcadia.edu
I came to Chestnut Hill College because I was given the opportunity to complete the Certification process for Instructional Technology Specialist. These are some of the highlights of my portfolio I created from classes at Arcadia, Chestnut Hill College and my professional job as Coach at Penn Wood Middle School.

There are many goals in creating this portfolio. I am using it as my presentation for candidacy as an Instructional Technology Specialist, and I have used it in my job as a coach to justify what I have done to work in that position. It is also a live website that I plan on continually using to serve as a live and up to date online resume. These are some of the highlights I feel best exemplify what I have learned (and continue to learn) as an Instructional Technology Coach.

As one of the things I had to do in getting ready for teaching ActiveInspire to my staff was place the faculty in the best setting possible for them to learn. I utilized a modified version of the Hooper and Rieber Scale in which they talk about 5 levels of Technology Integration. Image Courtesy of: SureStart
Knowing the Content Independent Study on Networking at Chestnut Hill College.
As part of my Master’s work at Arcadia I had to work collaboratively on-line with other students creating different plans and assignments. One of the plans we created involved us creating a technology plan that showed technology integration for each lesson. The following slides are an excerpt from that presentation:

Per the EETT Grant our school needed to keep assessment records of both Students and Staff in regards to their knowledge of technology. We used a portal of SimpleK12 Images Courtesy of: http://wpsdtechassessment.simplek12.com/ and http://simplek12.com/you-asked-it-more-engaging-assessmenthttp://wpsdtechassessment.simplek12.com/http://simplek12.com/you-asked-it-more-engaging-assessment
