  • Paula Lombardi

    Paula Lombardi has been teaching in the classroom for thirty two years and teaching online for Granite State College for two and a half years. She remarks, “I have been teaching online and developing Moodle courses for the School of Education (SOE) and we have grown at an amazing rate. The first year focus was on getting courses online and doing some initial revisions to the field-based courses. Currently we are integrating technology teacher standards and artifacts throughout the program, moving towards text (fee) free courses and redesigning courses with additional focus on developing ‘Habits of the Mind’ (HOM). The HOM focus is on modeling and training teachers to use research-based resources to make decisions about best practices in instruction.” Read More
