Saline Area Schools Board of Education trustee Michael McVey is a candidate for the board of the International Society for Technology in Education.

During the Nov. 28 meeting of the Saline Area Schools Board of Education, Supt. Scot Graden announced that trustee Michael McVey is running for a spot on the board of directors for the International Society for Technology in Education.

The society focuses on how technology can be used appropriately in classroom and creates standards for best uses. The society also provides a "seal of alignment" to educational products they feel would be useful to their membership.

McVey is a Professor at Eastern Michigan University and a member of the Michigan Association for Computer Users in Learning (MACUL). See the Saline Post's school board candidate profile on McVey and the ISTE candidate page for McVey for more information about this school board trustee and his qualifications.

Membership voting for ISTE's board of directors ends Dec. 12.

Thank you, Sarah, for the unexpected shout-out in the Saline Post this morning. Sadly, you need to be a member of ISTE to vote but if you do tweet about this, if you include #ISTEBoard the message will be picked up by quite a few people.

Teachers in Saline Area Schools have truly become leaders in technology integration and future-ready teaching so I am delighted to be able to share their work on a national (and international) stage whenever possible.

You're welcome. I just thought it was an interesting tidbit and when I looked at ISTE's website, found it even more interesting. I've written in the past (for the Heritage news chain) about how Saline schools incorporate technology into the classroom. I think you're doing interesting things there!
