At DigiCon17 last week DLTV president Mel Cashen was proud to be able to present Paula Christophersen with the prestigious ISTE Making IT Happen Award.
Paula has been a tireless worker in the education community, advocating for the Digital Technologies in all aspects of schooling. Paula was the Curriculum Manager for Digital Technologies for VCAA, played a vital role in writing the new Australian Curriculum, and is a wonderful supporter of teachers everywhere. Paula has made an incredible contribution to DLTV and to education in general. She is a generous colleague who is always willing to share her knowledge of teaching and learning.
The Making IT Happen award honours outstanding educators and leaders who demonstrate extraordinary commitment, leadership, courage and persistence in improving digital learning opportunities for students. Since its inception in 1995 more than 500 educators from around the world have received the award.
Everyone at DLTV would like to congratulate Paula for the prestigious award and for becoming part of such a select group. We feel it is a fitting acknowledgement of the amazing work she has done for many years, and for her contribution to a global community of educators.
