On today's episode, I talk with teacher and attorney Kerry Gallagher about going paperless in her classroom. 

Kerry has taught 8-12 grade social studies in public schools in New Hampshire and Massachusetts for 12 years.  She has presented at conferences including MassCUE and the Blueprint for Excellence National Conference. Kerry’s classroom is paperless. Her students use mobile devices to research, create, and submit what they have learned.  She won the 2014 Yale-Lynn Hall Teacher Action Research Prize (See her submission here) and was a speaker at the 2014 Yale Education Leadership Conference.  She teachers and is also the Mock Trial Team Coach at Reading Memorial High School in Reading, Massachusetts.  Kerry is admitted to practice law in Massachusetts, has a BA in Politics and Secondary Education from Saint Anselm College, and is a Level II Professional Ski Instructor of America.

Check out Kerry's blog: Teaching HistoryTech and connect with her on Twitter @KerryHawk02. And don't forget to give a peek to The Paperless Classroom (Recent institute Kerry's students and her presented to share their practice.)
