Sterling is a Technology Education Teacher who loves to learn about and teach others how they can use technology to improve efficiency in their lives. Technology Education is part of Career and Technical Education (CTE) or classes that help prepare students with skills to prepare them to enter the workforce or for higher education. This website contains videos, tutorials, and other thoughts that Sterling has relating to education, technology, and more. Sterling’s goal is to help students work at and learn at their own pace. He likes to record videos of his lessons, that way he has multiple methods for teaching. He can teach the whole class simultaneously through an “I do, We do, You do” method or he can have students work independently by watching a video and completing the task in the video. Often videos are for students to learn the basics of a software tool steps to perform a specific task, then they are to be creative and apply the same steps to their own unique project(s). The videos are also helpful for when students miss class, instead of stopping the class for them to “catch up” they can catch up on their own out.
Sometimes Sterling’s videos are for more complex tasks, that he performs maybe once a year, so he will make a video demonstrating how he needs to do the task as more as a refresher for him when he needs to accomplish that task. Sterling likes to share what he learns. He has presented workshops and PDs in New England.
One odd thing about Sterling, is that he seems to talk about himself in third person quit often, both in class and to his children. This website was created to curate Sterling’s Teachings and to hopefully help someone who is trying to do something better or figure out a new task. Sterling will update this website and create new tutorials as he finds time (like on surprise snow days like the day this is written) or when he needs to learn a new technology to teach his students. Please use this website to learn new techniques or skills and then share what you have learned with others.
