Technology Integration Specialist
710 North Main Street
London, KY 40741
My name is Karen Jones and I am the Technology Integration Specialist in the Laurel County School District. Prior to this position, I was a Library Media Specialist and a High School English Teacher.
I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in English at Berea College and my Master's Degree in Library Science at Eastern Kentucky University. I also obtained my Rank I in Educational Leadership and Administration from EKU.
The goal of the LCSS Technology Department is to integrate Technology into the classroom and assist students in becoming proficient 21st century digital learners.
Kentucky’s Technology Integration Specialists (TIS) provide on-site and on-demand assistance for fellow teachers to create different forms of learning and teaching with the help of technologies. They seek to improve student learning by showing teachers the thoughtful applications and best practices of these new tools. Indications show that TISs, carefully chosen and wisely used, are more effective in helping teachers incorporate technology into teaching and learning than any other form of professional development.
