ELI colleague selected as an Apple Distinguished Educator

16 04 2013

ELI Senior Lecturer, Joachim Castellano, was selected to represent Japan as an Apple Distinguished Educator (ADE). The ADE Program has been running since 1994 and exists to recognize and support visionary and innovative educators. Joachim recently attended a conference in Bali, Indonesia where he participated in workshops and seminars related to the role of technology in education. On his return, he kindly ran a workshop for colleagues where we learned some practical iPad tricks that we can use with our students.

When asked about his experience, he told us: “The best thing about the ADE Institute was meeting dedicated educators worldwide and hearing about their innovative and inspirational practices. I realized that it is not technology alone that’s transformational: it’s the teachers use of technology that can revolutionize learning.”
