Five of our Alpha Squirrel EdTech experts recently attended the Worldwide Apple Distinguished Educators (ADE) Institute in Berlin to collaborate, share and learn with educators from around the globe.
Alpha Squirrels Kelly Croy (@wirededucator), Kyle Pearce (@mathletepearce), John Shoemaker (@shoewee), Marc Faulder (@marcwithersey) and Monica Burns (@classtechtips) were among 400 educators at the invitation-only event.
Croy was featured as an ADE Global presenter. He showed fellow educators how he uses Reflector and AirParrot to promote a more engaged student learning environment in his classroom. His recent contribution to the Global Education Institute blog explained how his students use these EdTech tools to share and record mobile device screens.
“Berlin was fantastic,” Croy said. “I couldn’t have made it there without the support of Squirrels.”
The Worldwide ADE Institute is just one of the many education technology conferences and speaking engagements Alpha Squirrels attend throughout the year.
Check out some of the social conversation around the Alpha Squirrels program during the event!
