I have been awarded the Apple Distinguished Educator status, class of 2011.

The Apple Distinguished Educators (ADE) program was created to recognize K-12 and higher education pioneers who are using a variety of Apple products to transform teaching and learning.

ADEs work closely with Apple to lead innovation in education. They advocate using new technology to help engage students in new ways and share their expertise with other educators and policy makers.

They advise Apple on the realities of integrating technology into learning environments. They author and publish valuable insights, lessons, and best practices.

ADEs work together as ambassadors to develop and promote powerful ideas for improving teaching and learning worldwide.
