You may remember that I was accepted to be part of the Apple Distinguished Educator program in 2013 after only my first year of teaching. It was a great experience to be able to work with so many like-minded educators from around the globe. I have even dragged out my video entry for the 2013 program for you all to cringe at….
In 2014, applications were open for the conference to be held in San Diego, California. Entires were written response only (so I couldn’t rely on any fancy video transitions this time…).
In my responses I focused on the work I did last year in creating original, personalised resources in the way of iBooks textbooks. I also spoke on my new work in creating these kinds of resources for students new to the country or with learning or speech difficulties.
Looks like that did the trick as I have been accepted into the 2014 intake. This will be the first time I will be heading to the USA so it is very exciting….now, I just have to figure out how to pay for the airfares…
