TVA Teacher Earns Exclusive Distinction
- Quaglia named Microsoft Expert Educator -
For excellence in using technology to help students learn and achieve more, Tecumseh Vista Academy teacher Andre Quaglia has been recognized as a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert for 2015.
Each year the computer software giant selects 15 teachers in Canada to share their experiences on effective use of technology in education and provide insight to Microsoft on new products and tools for the classroom. Mr. Quaglia will be one of 5 educators to represent Canada at the 2015 Global Forum at Microsoft headquarters in Washington.
“Being selected as a MIE Expert is an amazing honour,” says Quaglia. The project-based learning activity he submitted to earn the distinction showed students using mobile technology to increase productivity and collaboration outside the traditional classroom.
