Making IT Happen is an internationally recognized awards program for educators & leaders in the field of educational technology integration in K–12 schools from ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education). The program identifies and rewards educational technology leaders around the world for their commitment and innovation.
ISTE affiliates, like the Missouri Educational Technology Community (METC), are able to nominate educators for Making IT Happen.
The latest area educator to receive the recognition from METC is Greg Lawrence. Greg is a Technology Coach in the Wentzville School District– the only one- and he helps over 900 certified staff integrate technology into their classrooms- he’s truly Making IT Happen for staff and students in Missouri’s fastest growing school district.
Outside of the Wentzville School District, Greg is active in the Educational Technology Association of St. Louis. ETA provides a forum for collaboration on educational issues, information about hardware and software and a means to communicate with other members on best practices. Greg also serves as a member of the Midwest Education Technology Conference Advisory Committee; he attends meetings in person at Cooperating School Districts, or via Skype, so he can always be part of the conversation. He is key figure on the team, and a top notch presenter at the conference itself.
Congratulations to Greg, and congratulations to the Wentzville School District.
