Apple Distinguished Educators Chicago-bound

  • ADE Chicago conference Nic Ford
  • ADE Chicago conference Lisa Whittaker

Bolton School Boys’ Division’s very own Apple Distinguished Educators (ADEs), Mr Nic Ford, Deputy Headteacher, and Mrs Lisa Whittaker, Junior School Teacher, are heading off to Chicago for next week’s Apple Distinguished Schools’ Global Innovation Summit. The pair will co-present a 45 minute workshop on how they use coding in Junior and Senior Schools to an audience of educators from around the world. They, along with teachers from Bolton’s Olive Tree Primary School, will be amongst a select group from the UK attending this inaugural global summit. Mr Ford and Mrs Whittaker gained their ADE status in 2015 and Bolton School is one of the few schools in the country to have Apple Distinguished School status. 

Immediately prior to flying out to the US Mr Ford will deliver a presentation on “The Use of Technology in Individual Subject Areas” at the HMC Spring Conference “Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality in Education” being held at the British Library.
