Dr. Rebecca Schlosser-Professor of Education -Alpine Campus

Dr. Rebecca Schlosser teaches Educational Leadership and Principal Preparatory courses and Educational Law at Sul Ross for the last 15 years. Originally from Houston, her first teaching job was in 1977.  Beginning in the 1980’s she practiced school law and represented districts all over Texas. She attributes her law experience as an asset to her career in Educational Leadership which is her passion. Known as a “legal educator”, she tries to close the communication gap to what is dictated by the legislature and what educators need to do and holds an Ed.D. in Educational Leadership from Sam Houston State University and a J.D. from the University of Houston.

Dr. Schlosser loves being a professor and is invested in her students’ success, engagement, and persistence throughout their educational career. With optimism and a caring heart, she believes everyone has a right to a college education. She recently submitted cycle four of the Principal Residency Grant which could financially support certified teachers attending Sul Ross State University aspiring to become principals.

Living in Alpine holds fond memories for Dr. Schlosser. Of those, she remembers volunteering as a parent for the high school Alpine Band while her son was in school. She was a member of Lion’s Club and was a judge for the municipal court here for a period of 3 years. She now lives in Houston with her husband and is proud to be a cancer survivor. Her favorite hobby while in Alpine was walking with her husband and was nicknamed “the walking people” in Alpine. “We walked every day. Did the loop twice a day, 10 miles a day”, she says. She also loves animals. She represented a no-kill animal shelter, The Lone Star Animal Shelter in Midland. Her favorite memory at Sul Ross State University is the staff Christmas parties. “They were happy and festive”.  Dr. Schlosser is happy that President Gallego is providing a fall celebration for faculty and staff. “He is a mover and shaker, very supportive, and invested in the university and community.”

Sul Ross State University is proud to have Dr. Rebecca Schlosser belong to our faculty community.

What are ISTE Standards?

The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) has standards for technology use in education. The organization provides a framework of technology standards for educators and students and is available free in a downloadable format. Adopted by all states in the US, these standards address ways technology can be utilized and implemented for educators, students, and educational leaders to be innovative in today’s world.

Why do ISTE standards matter?

These standards are designed to create effective and quality teaching and learning through the use of technology. Digital citizens and digital leaders are needed to compete in a global market that focuses on the many uses of technology, work collaboratively on projects using technology, and interaction in different working environments. Learners gain digital fluency, develop higher-order thinking skills, and exhibit digital citizenship skills. Empowering students with the opportunity to be innovative, creative, and collaborative using technology provides meaning and motivation to their work.

Need a virtual project? Use the option to assign students to breakout rooms. Instructors can monitor and participate in each room to instill they are on target. Make sure to tell them when to come back to the main room or assign a time in the settings.



Over the next few weeks, we will provide suggestions on how to integrate technology into your lessons using Zoom.

What Is Prezi?

Prezi is an online Adobe Flash-based presentation program. It differs from traditional presentation programs, like Microsoft PowerPoint and Apple Keynote, in that it is not based on slides. Instead, Prezi presentations exist on a canvas which is navigated by zooming in and out of different points on the canvas. Prezi allows the creation of linear and nonlinear presentations by changing the sizes and positions of objects. While Prezi is a visual medium that can display text, but not the most conducive for displaying lengthy text. With these limitations in mind, instructors and students can be better able to garner student engagement by using Prezi. 

Using Prezi designers can visually illustrate the relationship between concepts in the presentation, aiding student understanding of the presentation. Prezi also offers the ability for students to collaborate in class when using the program online, as up to eight people can edit the Prezi at the same time. For those teachers with larger classes, this could be accomplished by dividing students into groups, allowing for the synthesis of students’ knowledge. Since Prezi is available through a free online format, students and teachers can use Prezi during and after class through an online link. 

Because Prezi is still being developed, and is free, occasionally designers may encounter glitches. However, they are few and far between. Be mindful of its capabilities and its limitations before implementing Prezi into courses.
