Computers/Technology

Hello, 

My name is Don Lambert and I am the K-8 technology teacher for the 2022-23 school year. This will be my 6th year at Pine-Strawberry School, and I'm looking forward to the continued growth of all of our students!

General curriculum Notes: In addition to understanding the basic operation of personal computing devices, typing, and use of internet resources, we will learn how to create and use digital information: text, data, audio and visual. Critical thinking skills, math, accuracy, process flow mapping, collaboration and creativity will be points of focus as we guide our students' development in the age of information. 

We will devote a considerable amount of time coding to build logic skills and some awareness of "what's behind the curtain" in our computer driven world. New for this year we also have some age appropriate robots to experiment with, so that should be fun!

Please don't hesitate to call me at 928-476-3283, extension 1203 or email me at [email protected] if you have any questions about your student's progress or about the technology curriculum. I'd be happy to show you what we are covering and why, and discuss any ideas you may have for improvement!

Best regards, 
Don


Professional background:

I have a bachelor's degree in general K-8 education, and I also hold a bachelor's degree in electronics engineering. Prior to becoming a teacher, I worked for 20+ years at Motorola semiconductor operations and its spin-offs working in sustaining and new product development engineering, test engineering, and information architecture management. I had great experiences working with people all around the world both in person and virtually. Having grown up in a small rural area in Minnesota, now I'm back to enjoying small town living and hopefully making a difference by helping the next generation navigate the ever-changing world of technology :)
