Ridgefield Academy/Landmark Preschool (Ridgefield, CT) has an excellent opportunity for an experienced, energetic, and enthusiastic educational technologist.
Responsibilities will include teaching technology-oriented classes in grades 4-8 that build on the curriculum of other classes and also liaising with K-8 teachers across disciplines to create student-centered interdisciplinary learning experiences for students. The Academic Technology Coordinator will also manage our state of the art digital media facilities, which include a computer lab, a green screen room, and a sound studio, as well as a secondary computer lab.
A successful candidate will:
inspire teachers and students with a passion for creating with technology in the classroom
have experience with a wide range of technologies, comfortable with everything from a camera to a soldering iron
help teachers integrate technology into their classes, teaching necessary skills and also helping facilitate/co-teaching classes in other disciplines
be a resource for students as they work on independent or group work
proactively seek out opportunities to make our digital media facilities a hub of interdisciplinary learning
be eager to showcase student work both in school and at outside of it
develop and lead upper school elective courses and lower/middle school after school enrichment clubs
want to be a part of the school community beyond assigned classes and school day responsibilities
have both a good sense of humor and patience when working with others
The Academic Technology Coordinator reports to the Director of the Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning, but also has divisional responsibilities to the Head of Preschool and Lower School and the Head of Middle and Upper Schools.
Experience teaching technology to middle school-aged students is strongly preferred, as is a demonstrable history of collaborative work with teachers of all disciplines.
