English-teacher-turned-media specialist-turned-student tech team supervisor
If you’re a teacher who has taught here long enough, you probably remember me teaching you how to use the Internet to find resources to use in your class or how to use Microsoft Word, Publisher, or Excel (the newbies probably never had to create their own electronic gradebook using Excel 😉 See? You’ve been integrating technology for years; it’s just time to add some new things. When I was first asked to supervise this team, I was super excited…. then thought about it….and wasn’t too excited; this roller coaster ride continued until I finally got a little structure added and saw what kinds of things the team could do. While this team will evolve, I’ve so enjoyed these first few weeks. I love helping teachers and love teaching others how to help 😉 These students are eager to help you, but when they’re not helping, they’re learning (learning how to teach someone to use an app as opposed to showing; this means you will be the one sitting at the computer with the tech team member sitting beside you instructing you), finding and reviewing apps, and creating how-to videos. Aside from their tech skills, I think having the student perspective will help us as we search for what works best for the students sitting in the classrooms.
It’s time to meet the PHS Integrators.
My name is Michael Lowe, but I’m sure you already know that, at least, I would hope. Now, there have been some rumors floating around that I like computers. I wish to squash these rumors; I LOVE computers. I can figure out most problems people may have about technology related items, including Chromebooks. I’m also a “gamer” as so many people like to call it. I prefer the title Technological Genius. And yes, Chase is not the only one on student Tech Team. If you need any help please contact the nearest PHS Integrator (AKA Student Tech Team).
Hello, my name is Chase Meehan. I’m a junior here at PHS. To me, technology has always seemed like an excellent avenue for doing various tasks. Therefore, I have been interested in using it in every practical way possible, which constitutes my great interest in the tech team. My love of helping people is another big factor. It brings me great pride and pleasure to assist teachers and students with any problems that they face. 🙂
Hi, my name is Aylissa Bush! I am a senior at PHS. I am the producer of PHS News Today. I am planning on majoring in telecommunications after graduation. I decided to become an Integrator so I could better understand the technology in our school. As the year goes on I hope to help any of you with your Chromebook needs!
Hi, my name is Noah Weiss. I am a PHS Integrators at Paoli High School. Some of my interests are photography and doing design projects for the yearbook and newspaper. I am also in drama and choir. As PHS Integrators we look at apps that we think the students at Paoli High School should be able to access and apps that will help teachers integrate technology into the classroom. We also look at websites and find information that would help the student body and teachers become better with their Chromebooks. If you ever have any questions, ask the PHS Integrators, and we will be more than happy to help!

I spend all my time either playing a game or watching stuff about games or looking at parts to upgrade my computer at home. I became an Integrator because I wanted to dissect the workings of the Chromebook system and learn how it works. I came into the class also knowing that I would be going to different people and classes to help with Chromebooks. I think I can do a pretty good job helping everyone through the different things that the Chromebook has to offer.
My name is Mark Bridgewater, and I am a PHS Integrator. I am a big tech enthusiast who is always trying to hone in on his skills to figure out how to make his PC better. I love everything computers and even when it comes to making boring spreadsheets. I joined this team to get an opportunity to learn more about Chrome OS and further my communication skills. I hope to use my tech team experience to help myself in getting a degree in computer science.
Hello, my name is Dylan Terrell. I’m a sophomore, and I’m a PHS Integrator. I’ve just recently gotten into technology and became an Integrator to better understand the parts of a computer. Furthermore, I would like to help people who are having problems with their Chromebooks.
