Welcome to iserotope! My name is Mark Isero, and I teach at a public high school in San Francisco.
A couple years ago, I got interested in using technology in my classroom. But things seemed impossible: Either I would need thousands of dollars or some crazy tech know-how to make anything happen.
I’m happy to say that I was wrong. Technology doesn’t have to be expensive and it doesn’t have to be complex. Every teacher — no matter your resources or tech skills — can do this.
The purpose of iserotope is to tell the stories of my attempts to engage my students and colleagues in technology with a very limited budget.
I also hope to highlight things that real teachers can do in their classrooms to help real students with their work.
I hope you enjoy iserotope and find it useful!
