Diane Keeton

What’s your first and last name?

  • Diane Keeton

What do you teach / what is your ‘title’ at school?

  • 5th grade Science

How are you involved in education?

  • How am I not? My colleagues will tell you, I spend too much time at school. I enjoy my “prep” time, coming up with new ideas and activities for my students to make them think about what they are learning. I used to be ready with answers, now I’m ready with questions for them to find the answers. I love the technology direction of our school (which is not to say I good at making it all happen); I enjoy the process of learning and how it will encourage my students to be problem solvers instead of problem creators.

What does your ideal school or classroom look like?

  • Ideally, my classroom would be students teaching one another, helping one another, and taking responsibility for their own learning. I am very interested in the flipped classroom to see how it works.Students actively discussing and problem solving would be wonderful.

If you were to lead a session at Edcamp, what would it be about?

  • Google folders for student’s work.
