Digital Equity Webinar – MAET Bridge

This afternoon I was honored to participate in a webinar with a fantastic panel of educators. We had the opportunity to discuss digital equity, technology integration, BYOD and many other EdTech topics.

The elite panel included: Heidi Gascon an MAET alum and Instructional Technology Specialist at Ingham ISD, and Michele Ellis a middle school ELA and science teacher at Williamston Community Schools.

Facilitating our discussion was an equally amazing and impressive group of MAET year two students: Alex Miller, Jon Gere and Chris Armour.

The MAET Bridge series provides a wealth of webinars featuring exceptional educators addressing a myriad of educational topics. You can view this webinar below, and the archive of MAET Bridge webinars here.

MAET Words, 2014

One of the great activities from this summer was the collaboration between all three MAET courses to create the video you see below. Those of us in Chicago teamed up with the East Lansing cohort and the overseas cohort in Galway, Ireland to piece together this excellent Steve Jobs quote (which you can see in it’s entirety below).

MAET Words, 2014 from Punya Mishra on Vimeo.


Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: that everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that people can use. Maybe that’s the most important thing, to shake off this erroneous notion that life is there and you’re just gonna live in it, versus embrace it, change it, improve it, make your mark upon it. However you learn this, you’ll want to change life, and make it better. Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same. – Steve Jobs
