Apple Distinguished Educators

Have you heard about these? I was searching Apple on the iTunes Store to see if anything new popped up, and sure enough, it did.

These are some phenomenal teachers doing amazing work with kids.

The new frontier in this goes beyond the standard instruction. This goes beyond Project Based Learning (PBL). This is now going into Challenge Based Learning.

The students are not just given projects to produce a product (paper, video, presentation), they are taking this to the next step in using what they are learning to make PSA's for government agencies, and other projects to promote action from their local voters. They are trying to make a difference in the world.
