Walnut Creek, Calif., September 22, 2016 -- CUE is excited to announce that Cathy Hunt will be the Closing Keynote speaker for the CUE 2017 National Conference to be held March 15-18, in Palm Springs, California. Hunt’s keynote, The Art and Soul of Education, will be presented at an earlier time, 12:00 - 1:15 pm, on Saturday, March 18 in the Oasis 4 ballroom of the Palm Springs Convention Center.
With her irrepressible energy and dynamic presentation style, Cathy Hunt will provide educators with a new perspective on creative technology integration. As she states, "A redefinition of creativity is required for the contemporary student, but when we look beyond the buzzwords and catchphrases, what does ‘being creative' really mean? Have you considered that every moment in teaching is a creative act? Or that to be creative is to be fully human?” Hunt, a well-known advocate for the creative integration of technology in education, has developed ground-breaking programs for students around the world that combine hands-on, tactile, and collaborative ways of working with mobile devices.
As an award- winning educational consultant, presenter, author, and experienced Arts Educator at St. Hilda’s School on Australia’s Gold Coast, she has worked with tens of thousands of teachers globally to connect creative technology and cutting-edge pedagogical approaches with diverse learners. Hunt is probably best known for her work on iPadartroom.com, a home base for educators to engage with innovative ideas, resources, and technology for learning that combines paint and pixels.
Hunt is an Apple Distinguished Educator currently serving on the Advisory Board for the Asia-Pacific region. Recent accolades include the 2016 ISTE Mobile Learning Innovation Award, two Digital Innovation in Learning Award honourable mentions from Edsurge/Digital Promise, and 21st Century Learning International’s Teacher of the Year finalist. Cathy’s iBook, More iPad Art also won Best Non-Fiction and Best Reference title at the iBA Awards in Nashville, TN. Registration for the CUE 2017 National Conference is now open.
