Professional Learning Specialist
Troy Kuhn is a Google Certified Educator who currently works as an Instructional Technology Specialist for Brenham ISD.
By bringing a passionate approach into his technology professional development sessions, Troy emphasizes that the tool isn’t what is in important, it’s how you use it. Whether it is giving group training, planning how to incorporate instructional technology into a unit, modeling a lesson with a teacher, or working directly with students, Troy feels each set of learners is unique. What web tool or product may work in one situation, may not for others. The key is to find what that specific group is trying to accomplish and creating a technique that works for them.
