Kim BreuningerORG Chester County Intermediate Unit Title BIO After graduation from the University of Delaware in 1977 I began teaching. I have taught at every level from pre-K-graduate school. My primary content area was in the sciences including Biology, general science, anatomy and physiology, physical education and health. Following graduate school in exercise physiology I moved from the classroom and entered the rehabilitation field as director of exercise physiology and cardiac rehabilitation. My love of teaching called me back to the classroom but in the completely new field of educational technology. Although I loved my children I again grew frustrated with the speed at which instructional technology integration and the "learning sciences" was moving within the schools. As a result, I joined the Chester County Intermediate Unit as an Instructional Technology Specialist. My areas of expertise expanded to include the use of distance learning modes to enhance student learning. Our partnership with the MAGPI group at the University of Pennsylvania has enabled us to develop programs that reach to all corners of the world. I have presented at local, national and international conferences on the effective use of technology integration and future learning environments. I understand the constraints of our classroom environments, teacher responsibilities and appropriate use of technology to enhance learning and the necessity of building collaborative support at each level.
