Jill Schaumloeffel, a visiting professor of information technology at Potomac State College of West Virginia University, attended a workshop this past summer in Dayton, Ohio where participants learned about ways of incorporating wireless technology into their classroom curriculum.
The Teachers Institute (TI) on Wireless Technology has been sponsored by the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) since 2004 and according to the ARRL Web site, provides teachers with the tools and strategies to introduce basic electronics, the science of radio, space technology and satellite communications, as well as weather science, introduction to microcontrollers and basic robotics in their classrooms.
“I’ve used many of the things I learned at the TI to enhance my technology classes here at Potomac State,” said Schaumloeffel, who also teaches amateur radio classes in the evenings.
Schaumloeffel earned her bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Michigan State University in Lansing, Mich. and her masters of information technology, information security and assurance from Kaplan University in Davenport, Iowa.
