Touro College Celebrates Its Computer Science Expert & Alumnus Timothy Gill, Manhattan, New York

Touro College Graduate School of Technology (GST) is proud to have such talented and successful alumni. Today, the Graduate School of Technology would like to highlight the achievements of alumnus Timothy Gill. Timothy is an Instructional Technology Program (ITP) student who recently obtained a position as a computer teacher for PS 42 in Queens, New York. He is really enjoying his new position and feels like he is truly making an impact!

Timothy is no stranger to the classroom. As part of his final project for the Instructional Technology Program, he taught computer programming to 5th & 6th grade students at Mckenna Elementary School on Long Island. To aid in his lessons, Timothy used MIT’s Scratch. This programming platform was designed to help users to create their own multimedia. He was thrilled to participate in this project, especially since Scratch has been proven to be an excellent tool for shaping the minds of 21st century learners.

The Scratch programming language relies on visual blocks that fit together to perform certain tasks, which allows students of varying abilities to utilize the technology. Students can create their own animations, stories, and games on the platform, which allows them to learn important problem solving techniques. The software is designed to encourage students to use creative thinking and develop innovative processes using technology. Secondly, it promotes communication and collaboration amongst students.

Timothy Gill is grateful for his education at Touro College and the teachers at the Graduate School of Technology are happy for him! To find out more information on how to attend the technical school, visit the website.
