San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 24, 2010
Youth Pulse Inc. (Ypulse), the leading authority on youth, today named John Brishcar, a middle school teacher from Front Royal, VA, its 2010 Totally Wired teacher. Ypulse also named two finalists, Adam Bellow, a special education teacher in Copiague, NY, and Kevin Hodgson, a sixth grade English teacher in Southampton, MA.
The award, presented by Dell, is inspired by Ypulse.com founder Anastasia Goodstein’s book, Totally Wired: What Teens & Tweens Are Really Doing Online, and the challenges she observed when teachers tried to integrate technology into their public school classrooms.
The goal of the award is to recognize a teacher who has overcome these challenges and is inspiring to both students and other educators. Dell’s support for this initiative is part of a longstanding commitment to supporting educators who lead by example, demonstrating for students the power of technology to enhance learning and achievement.
“We’re thrilled to honor John Brishcar for the work he’s done to integrate technology into his classroom despite resource challenges,” said Anastasia Goodstein, Ypulse Founder and Editor-In-Chief. “Mr. Brishcar is also an evangelist, moderating a Yahoo! Group for over 2,300 middle school science teachers, making him our pick for this year’s Totally Wired Teacher.”
Brishcar and both finalists will all receive an IT solution for their classrooms from Dell.
