  • And the winner of the IVC Award is...

    Peter Paccone & Mali Bickley! 

    The ISTE Interactive Video Conferencing PLN awarded two deserving individuals for their outstanding contributions to video conferencing in education. There were many applications for this award and many great projects! Everyone that submitted an application has great things going on and deserves an award! It was a tough competition!

    The Informal Educator Award Winner: Mali Bickley with the Connected North Organization in Canada! The Connected North Program was created to aid northern schools for not only the students, but the teachers as well. They were able to reduce the isolation in those schools by bringing in speakers, experts, and cross-cultural classrooms. Mali did an amazing job to promote the use of innovative video conferencing technology! Mali will receive an ISTE registration for next year's conference as well as a plaque to be presented at this year's conference. You can check out Connect North by CLICKING HERE

    The Educator Award Winner: Peter Paccone of San Marino High School in California! Peter is a Social Studies who strives to use video conferencing to connect his students to the world covering a variety of topics and issues. He uses video conferencing with his students to bring Social Studies to life by connecting with people that appear in textbooks, the news, authors, subject matter experts and many others. Peter will receive free programs for his class, a CILC Premium Membership, and a plaque to be presented at this year's conference. You can find more information about Peter's adventures by CLICKING HERE.

    We will host this award next year as well! If you have awesome things going on at your institution, be sure to fill out an application next year!
