    Andre Quaglia is a Department Head at Tecumseh Vista Academy, Ontario Canada: "I am inspired to improve student learning and prepare young adults to become the leaders of tomorrow. Advocating the use of mobile technology to extend learning outside the traditional classroom is my passion. My aspiration is to encourage educators to use effective pedagogy that is not device-specific. This will enable students to demonstrate ingenuity by knowing how to complete tasks using a variety of technology tools available."

    James Gill is a Grade 6 & 7 teacher in SD43/Coquitlam, Canada: "I am challenging the status quo of education today. I want my students to get the education that best prepares them to chase their dreams, and to make a positive difference in the world. Currently I am focusing on student / teacher rapport, and how to integrate different technologies into the process of teaching and learning. I leverage technology to help students communicate, to keep themselves organized, and to create works of the imagination. My students and I are piloting Office 365 in our district, and it has empowered us."

    Erin O'Rourke

    I am a middle and senior school teacher at an all-girls independent school, Branksome Hall, in Toronto, Canada. The school is a leading International Baccalaureate (IB) World school.
    I currently teach middle school drama and high school computer studies, in addition to my role as a technology integration support teacher for our faculty.
    My recent drive in my professional development has been advancing my professional networks and exploring ideas around motivation and success of girls in STEM. This has been enhanced through my involvement with the ISTE Arts Educator Network and Cohort21. My blog investigates a lot of my ideas around getting more girls interested in STEM, most specifically, computer science. Although I work at a girls school, we still need to find relevant and exciting ways to motivate them in these subjects.
