Brenda Ubben is a District Instructional Technology Lead, techie, mom, wife, animal lover, and amateur potter. She taught middle school in Wichita, Kansas for 12 years, during which she taught computer classes at all grade levels, repaired building technology, and helped teachers integrate technology into their lesson plans. She is always finding and figuring out how to use the latest technology, from robotics to iPads. Several years ago, when her school received a grant for iPad carts, Brenda became a connected educator in order to help become an expert in iPad implementation. Under her guidance, the school became one of the first schools in USD259 to implement iPads, and now has 9 iPad carts with about 375 iPads. Brenda has also taken student teams to robotic competitions and Future City competitions.
She graduated from the University of South Dakota with a Masters in Technology Training and Development.
