In recognition of their pioneering work using Apple products to transform teaching and learning in powerful ways, four members of Maryville University’s faculty have been selected as part of the Apple Distinguished Educators Class of 2017.
Joining a select, worldwide community of 2,500 visionary educators are Candace Chambers, PhD, professor of chemistry; Sam Harris, director of learning technology and support; Katherine Kline, PhD, assistant professor of rehabilitation counseling; and Dustin York, EdD, assistant professor of communication.
Dustin Loeffler, JD, associate professor of cyber security, was tapped as an Apple Distinguished Educator in 2015.
Maryville educators like these are revolutionizing learning by integrating technology—specifically, the iPad and Apple ecosystem — into the classroom environment. Through Maryville’s Digital World initiative, all traditional undergraduate students receive an iPad. Fully loaded with educational materials and resources, the iPad also provides students with access to more than 80 apps in the Maryville cloud.
