Thane Doubet
Biology and Chemistry Teacher
Cortland Junior Senior High School
Cortland Enlarged City School District

Congratulations to Mr. Thane Doubet, our February 2017 Featured Teacher! Thane, a 19-year veteran teacher, has taught biology and chemistry at Cortland Junior Senior High School for the past four years. He previously taught science and computer technology for 11 years at Marathon High School and four years at Unadilla Valley Central School.

What are some of the innovative ways that Thane integrates technology into his curriculum?

G Suite for Education was introduced at Cortland Junior Senior High School this year, and Thane has embraced the new technology by leveraging Google Classroom to interact with his students. Using Classroom, Thane has established a digital communication and collaboration platform that integrates with a variety of online tools. One of those tools, Wizer, allows teachers to create digital worksheets. Wizer has been one of Thane's essential applications, as he is able to create digital homework assignments and assessments that can be shared directly to Classroom. He also instituted the use of Plickers as a means of formatively assessing his students' content knowledge. Additionally, Thane successfully leverages a Chrome Extension called Tampermonkey to develop complex chemical equations that include sub- and super-scripts. He also uses Google Drawings to create templates of chemical diagrams that allow students to complete homework digitally.

 
How have students benefited from Thane's technology integration initiatives?

Thane's students have benefitted from the quickness and ease with which feedback is provided for their work. Using the online tools, students can now complete their work paperlessly. This enables Thane to efficiently evaluate their work and provide them with prompt and individualized comments. The online tool Plickers enables him to gather immediate feedback from students after covering a topic -- this information reveals what he needs to reteach before students leave his classroom. These tools allow the students to learn through technology and provide Thane with the data required to adjust his teaching to maximize learning for all students.

Is This You?
Are you the type of teacher who thinks about technology integration and new ways to enhance instruction, engage students, and make learning fun?  Know someone who fits the profile?  Recommend a "Featured Teacher" so we can recognize and celebrate great work in the area of instructional technology!
