Gregg Legutki to Receive Award from CUE
Gregg Legutki, RIMS CTAP instructional leader, will be among those honored by Computer Using Educators (CUE) for his contributions to the use of technology in teaching and learning next month. Gregg will receive the prestigious Gold Disk Award at a ceremony on March 16, 2012 at the annual Computer Using Educators Conference.

He co-developed and coordinated the Diverse Learners Symposium strand for the CUE conference for the past three years, managing multiple sessions devoted to addressing the needs of the diverse learners teachers across the state face on a day-to-day basis.
Mr. Legutki has been a central figure in the field of advancing student achievement through educational technology, particularly in Riverside, Inyo, Mono, and San Bernardino counties, as a Project Specialist CTAP. He has developed and presented countless staff development workshops to teachers that have led to increased student engagement and learning. In San Bernardino County, Mr. Legutki was instrumental in creating the Special Education Teacher Technology Specialists (SETTS) project. This project was designed based on research of effective adult learning practices and a district-based capacity-building model was created. This resulted in the selection of fourteen district representatives providing a cross section of grade levels, types of disabilities served, as well as technology proficiency.
