The METC Conference’s Midwest Spotlight Educators is an honor that recognizes education technology leaders in the region, whose practices are making a difference for students and teachers. This is reflected in increased knowledge, improved skills and academic achievement by integrating technology into their instructional practices. The 2014 Midwest Spotlight Educators were selected, after an application process, by the METC Planning and Advisory Committee. Look for The Connected Classroom to profile each leading up to METC in February; in the meantime, click on the photo above to learn more about the selected Illinois and Missouri educators. Congratulations to the 2014 spotlight educator group! Each will present at least twice at the conference.
