Global tech giant Apple names Helen Caldwell in Apple Distinguished Educators list 2017

News Page 25th April 2017

Helen Caldwell, Senior Lecturer in Education at the University of Northampton joins the prestigious ranks of the Apple Distinguished Educators class of 2017. The awards recognise primary, secondary and higher education pioneers who are using Apple technology to transform teaching and learning.

Helen Caldwell said: “I’m honoured to receive this recognition from Apple. Mobile technologies can transform the classroom experience for children, putting learning in the palm of their hand.  The use of touch screens and apps, both in the classroom and outdoors, gives children more control over the direction of their learning. They can document and share their own physical exploration of the world and apply computational thinking to engage with real world problems.”

The Apple Distinguished Educators Team said: “Apple is pleased to welcome Helen Caldwell to the ADE Class of 2017. The Apple Distinguished Educator (ADE) Program began in 1994, when Apple recognized K-12 and higher education pioneers who are using a variety of Apple products to transform teaching and learning in powerful ways. Today it has grown into a worldwide community of over 2,500 visionary educators and innovative leaders who are doing amazing things with Apple technology in and out of the classroom.”
