Ann DeMarle of Champlain College named Apple Distinguished Educator
Champlain College professor Ann DeMarle has been named an Apple Distinguished Educator. DeMarle directs the Multimedia & Graphic Design program and the new Electronic Game and Interactive Development program at Champlain.
The Apple Distinguished Educator program includes a select group of faculty members from North America and Europe who use Apple technology in creative and influential ways. According to a statement from Apple Computer, Inc., when new technologies are developed, these leading educators are the first to make effective use of technology to support learning objectives in the classroom. They also model effective administrative leadership and teacher professionalism.
As mentors, they are committed to engage, motivate, and inspire young minds, and they influence other educators by presenting their successes at key conferences and events, leading hands-on workshops, and getting actively involved at the local, state, and national levels.
In addition to year-round networking and professional development opportunities, DeMarle will also attend Apple Camp for five days of workshops in Monterey, Calif., this summer.
