New York City’s Graduate School Highlights Two Extraordinary Masters in Technology Students, Manhattan, New York

Every year students who are studying at Touro College Graduate School of Technology (GST), New York City's top graduate school, participate in a final project as part of their ITP program. This project is a culmination of their passion for using technology in the classroom and is designed to showcase the diverse ways technology can be incorporated into educational settings. Here, the graduate school would like to highlight the final projects of two students: Kristin Domnisch and Sara Silver.

For her final project, Kristin Domnisch, a Master of Science in Instructional Technology graduate, used online technology to develop the writing and oral language abilities of students with special needs. The project took place at PS 34 in Queens Village, where she taught kindergartners and first graders, and continues to do so. During the project she focused on the writing skills of her students, whose disabilities ranged from speech impairment to autism, from impaired mobility to ADHD, and more. Her classes consisted of using a Motorola Xoom tablet, a Smart Voice recorder and Microsoft Expression Web to create an online space that would show students’ progress and showcase their work.

Sara Silver embarked upon ‘Six Words for Schools’ as her final project as part of her Master of Science in Instructional Technology degree. The project used the Six Word Memoirs idea coined by Larry Smith, founder of SMITH magazine. The aim is to write a story in just six words. Silver developed a workbook for guiding students through a step-by-step writing process using lists and descriptive exercises. She implemented it in three classrooms with a total of 75 students participating. Silver says, “it was great to do something different that excited both kids and teachers, inviting students to think critically and creatively about their work.”
