Elk Grove Unified School District
Techology Integration Specialist
Elk Grove California
Gail Desler is a technology integration specialist for the Elk Grove Unified School District. She is also a Google Certified Teacher and a Teacher Consultant for the National Writing Project. Much of her focus is in supporting students in becoming “change writers,” empowered to use technology in ways that make a positive difference in all the communities to which they belong, online or face-to-face.
Beyond the school day, she co-curates, with Natalie Bernasconi, the Digital ID Project, a global microphone for students to speak out on digital citizenship issues. Gail has also co-authored (with Natalie) “Driving Without a License: Digital Writing Without Digital Citizenship,” the opening chapter for Solution Tree Press’s Using Technology to Enhance Writing.
