Greg Schwanbeck on Global Education, EdTech, and STEM Education
I love teaching! Currently, I work at Westwood High School as a Physics and Astronomy teacher and as an instructional technology coach tasked with helping my colleagues capitalize on our district’s 1-to-1 Chromebook program. I also work as a lecturer for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Scheller Teacher Education Program where I teach Educational Theory & Practice I, II, and III.
I am an Apple Distinguished Educator, a Google Educator, a U.S. Department of State Teachers for Global Classrooms fellow, and a regional leader in providing edtech-focused professional development.
My teaching methods and thoughts on educational technology have been featured nationally in publications such as The Huffington Post, EdSurge, and the book American Teacher: Heroes in the Classroom by Katrina Fried.
I earned my master’s degree via the Technology, Innovation, and Education program at Harvard University and earned my bachelor’s degrees in Physics and Mathematics at Union College.
When I'm not teaching I enjoy seeking out adventure with my amazing wife Keba and two sons, Taylor and Thomas.
