"Martin’s active participation as a leader in the edtech community is to be commended. I and many other technology leaders have benefited from Martin’s leadership in CUE’s Learning Networks and professional development events over the years. Martin’s willingness to help others, his ability to lead with empathy and understanding and his commitment to teachers and stude‍‍‍nts has been a great benefit to the CUE community. As a CUE Board member, I greatly appreciate his volunteer efforts on the organization’s behalf."

This workshop will present digital pathways to transform instruction for English Learners and to address the 4 Cs of Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Creativity. These innovative resources are natural vehicles for engaging student interest, for differentiating reading and writing assignments, and for revisiting skills and content in a new, meaningful format. They can become an invaluable part of the small group structure, allowing the teacher more time for RTI, ELD, or other small group instruction.

Sketchnoting is more than a way to capture information visually. It is a strategy that combine‍‍‍s visual, motor and cognitive processes that fully engage students in their learning!

This workshop is designed to meet the needs of educators who already possess a strong foundation in using of the G Suite platform. Explore‍‍‍ advanced features and concepts to extend your knowledge to modern classroom engagement!

Critical Thinker, ‍‍‍Communicator, Collaborative‍‍‍

Martin is effective in all these groups because he’s a living embodiment of the 4Cs. Martin is incredibly CREATIVE leader and edu-innovator and his presentatio‍‍‍ns and educational solutions are proof of that, he’s a CRITICAL THINKER able to identify weaknesses in plans or activities and develop solutions on the fly. Martin is a great COMMUNICATOR, adept in face to face, email and social media. I’ve never met anyone more COLLABORATIVE than Martin. He’s a perennial “yes and” type of teammate - always ready to pitch in and make the team look and perform better.

I have known Martin in several capacities, all within my work as CEO of CUE. Since 2009, he has tirelessly donated his expertise as the co-chair of our Tech Leader Learning Network (formerly SIG). In this capacity, he has served as a supporter of his fellow leaders in educational technology. Further, when a vacancy appeared in hi‍‍‍‍‍‍s local CUE affiliate, Monterey Bay CUE, he stepped up to lead this regional group of educators, effectively rebooting the wayward‍‍‍ organization, revitalizing and reenergizing it through his infectious enthusiasm. In addition, he has often presented at CUE Conferences, been a member of our CUE Rock Star Camps and at the Annual Leadership Development Institute. He gives generously of his time, sharing his expertise and offering guidance as the use of technology has expanded within California districts
