Scott Newcomb @SNewco

Math Teacher, Adjunct Professor

My name is Scott Newcomb, and I am currently in my seventeenth year of teaching 4th grade mathematics at St. Marys Intermediate School. Throughout my years of teaching, I have been an advocate and ambassador for technological integration within the classroom setting. Through my journey, I have had the privilege of playing an active role in many professional development opportunities to expand my repertoire of teaching strategies. In turn, I have been able to share my knowledge with colleagues and other professionals in my line of work.

My greatest area of expertise revolves around Mobile Learning. I reach out to others through social media in many ways. I share resources with others through my twitter handle at @SNewco, and also on my blog entitled “The Mobile Native.” It has been my honor to share guest blog posts for up and coming, well-known influential technological companies such as BrainPop, Remind, Smartblog on Education, TenMarks and Verizon Wireless. I have participated and appeared in documentaries with Verizon Wireless and PBS. I was also a contributor for literary resources such as Teaching Generation Text: Using Cell Phones to Enhance Learning by Lisa Nielsen and Willyn Webb and Designing mLearning by Clark Quinn.
