After an amazing time at ADE Institute 2015 in Amsterdam, I jumped at the opportunity this year to apply for the Worldwide Institue 2016. Today, I was delighted when I opened an email saying that my application had been successful and that I had been invited to attend Institute again in the summer!
What are ADE’s?
The ADE programme began in 1994 and Apple describe the program as “a relationship program focused on educational excellence and leadership. ADEs are part of a global community of education leaders recognized for doing amazing things with Apple technology in and out of the classroom. They explore new ideas, seek new paths, and embrace new opportunities. That includes working with each other and with Apple to bring the freshest, most innovative ideas to learners everywhere“. Currently, there are more than 2 000 ADEs spread across the globe and having worked with a couple of ADE’s, I know the statement above is definitely true! As a community, they meet and collaborate to devise solutions to address some of the problems faced by educators.
I look forward to meeting up with ADE’s from around the world!
