Fourth-grade teacher Linda Lee Morgan continues to champion the effective use of technology in instruction in her new position at Eastwood Elementary School in Salt Lake City. She helps her students learn to use a variety of multimedia tools to research topics and create curriculum- based projects and also strives to promote new technology learning among her colleagues. In 2000, she was named one of the top ten technology educators in the state by the Utah Education Network and the Utah Office of Education. Mrs. Morgan has a Masters Degree in Instructional Technology and a K-12 Library Media Certificate. She has recently completed an endorsement in Gifted Education and is now teaching classes for accelerated learners in third and fourth grade. When she was recognized as a Milken Educator, Mrs. Morgan was a fourth-grade teacher at Cottonwood Elementary School in Salt Lake City. Her students used computers to organize ideas and create video presentations. They wrote and compiled a multimedia storybook illustrated with hand-drawn pictures and digital images. As the school's technology facilitator for many years, Mrs. Morgan assessed her colleagues' technology skills and taught after-school courses on using technology to enhance instruction and enrich student learning.
