Theresa Overall is an associate professor at University of Maine Farmington in Secondary/Middle Education. She teaches both technology integration and mathematics methods to undergraduate pre-service teachers and teaches both technology and curriculum/instruction/assessment to in-service teachers through UMF's master's program. She was co-author of the 1-to-1 laptop requirement for students and co-developer of the faculty professional development for integrating technology into all courses for Secondary/Middle Education. She has worked closely with school districts in Western Maine on a variety of projects.
Dr. Overall's past experiences include working at The Lamplighter School in Dallas Texas for 21 years as a full-time mathematics classroom teacher (in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades), as the technology coordinator for the school (pre-school through 4th grade), and as a half-time classroom teacher and half-time computer project coordinator when the school first started using computers in 1978. Lamplighter was the first elementary school in the world to have computers in every classroom. They were the beta test site for the first commercial version of Logo, a programming language that changed the face of computers in the classroom in the early 1980’s. Theresa worked closely with Seymour Papert and his colleagues at MIT and with the development team at Texas Instruments. Theresa has also worked as a trainer and curriculum designer for Texas Instruments, GoKnow (a software company that makes educational products for Palms, Pocket PCs and other mobile devices), and the Topocam (a digital robotic camera that makes motion and time visible in ways never seen before). A native Texan, Theresa earned her bachelors in mathematics from Hollins in Roanoke, Virginia and her master’s and doctorate in Educational Computing from University of North Texas.
