Jamesville-DeWitt Middle School
Jamesville-DeWitt Central School District
Congratulations to Mr. Andy Eldridge, our March 2017 Featured Administrator! Andy, a 20-year veteran educator, has been the principal of Jamesville-DeWitt Middle School for over three years. He previously taught social studies.
What are some of the innovative ways that Andy integrates technology into his leadership?
This is the first school year (2016-2017) that Jamesville-DeWitt Middle School (J-D MS) went to a completely mobile atmosphere for computer usage. Andy helped the school transition its "computer lab" into a technology classroom and maker space. For the past two years, the teachers at the middle school have been working on using computer technology as an effective tool to help students learn curriculum in all areas of study. Instructional technologists from the CNYRIC came to J-D MS to provide an introduction to Google Classroom and Google Apps, and follow-up occurred throughout the next couple of years. Currently, Chromebooks and MacBook Pros are available for teachers and students on mobile carts at every grade level and for special area classrooms. Students also have access to technology within the library and in study hall rooms. Read more!
