Mike is dedicated to making sure that teachers know how to properly integrate technology into their classroom. As a former grade school, high school teacher, and now a technology director, along with being an adjunct college professor, Mike brings more than 15 years experience to the field of ed tech. Mike also is a very involved member of ICE (Illinois Computing Educators), currently serving as an Executive Board member and serves on several committees. Mike has presented on many ed tech topics in multiple states and countries (See side bar). Mike believes that everyone, no matter their technology skill level, can effectively integrate technology into their classroom. He also believes in the philosophy that technology is not a tool to teach but a tool to supplement the learning process in the classroom. The second you have the technology teach for you is when it has become ineffective in the classroom.
