No breaks, no meals. 10 million people hand in hand in a single file line would stretch from Los Angeles to New York, New York to Toronto, trying to Vancouver in Vancouver, back to Los Angeles. Again, those air fund stats. But the best one is 10 million teachers integrating technology affect 300 million students around the world. So about 20 years ago, when, um, technology was just being introduced into the schools, some thought leaders at Intel, led by Craig Barrett, who is the CEO at the time and a former educator, realized that teachers may not have the skills and the knowledge of how to use that technology, how to harness that technology, the power of that technology to improve teaching and learning. So they decided to take that challenge head on, and they had a program created called until teach to the future. This program consisted of a teacher professional development course that help teachers integrate technology into their curriculum to improve teaching and learning. So about a month ago, I was doing some early spring cleaning and I was a classroom teacher for 15 years. So you can imagine I have still many precious Mementos that I have kept. And as I was going through them, I found something. I found this. This is my certificate from the very first Intel course ever taught, and there were about 20 of us in that class. That class changed my teaching, and I felt passionate about helping other teachers learn how to integrate technology and transform their classroom and, frankly, changed their students lives. So from the first few Intel courses that were taught, the teachers there became the trainers. This was a train, the trainer model, and they went back to their schools into their districts. They trained teachers there. Some of them got chosen to travel to other states. Is the program expanded and and teach teachers there? A few had the opportunity to go overseas as we is. The program was deployed in in different countries, and a few of them had the opportunity to write curriculum for future courses. And as somebody who actually went through every one of those steps and now is the global K 12 education manager. I got to tell you, the journey has been amazing. The program now is called It's known as Intel Teach, and it's a Siri's, of course, is that teachers can take either online or face to face and their facilitated by either current classroom teachers or former classroom teachers. The courses range in everything from helping the teacher who's new to technology understand how technology can improve their productivity to advanced technology. Integration course is that focus. I'm not just the technology because it's It's as much about the pedagogy is about the technology but focus on, like student centered learning and topics such as project based Approaches, Formative and Summit of Assessment. Ah, collaboration in a digital classroom, understanding how to analyze data, all things that help improve 21st century skills and students. Those skills, such as as creativity, is critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, digital literacy, communication. The course is now there were the portfolio actually consists of over 13 courses localized into 34 languages, and we have trained over 10 million teachers in over 70 countries around the world. So a number of years ago we were traveling out to a rural school in India. Couple hours outside of the city, driving on a very dusty, dirty road. We get out to this school and at the school is the teacher in the students, the principal, the mayor, town council folks, whole array of people, and they couldn't wait to tell us their story. We, ah, go into the school. They're so proud. They take us into the computer lab, and it consisted of seven mismatched computers. But they were all connected to the Internet, the teacher told us when she designed her unit when she took the course in Designer Unit, she wanted something that her kids could focus on that had to do with the community. And one of the issues in their community is that the disease rate was higher there than in the surrounding towns. So, she said, This is what I wanted my kids to focus on. So they got on the Internet. They did their research. They went out into the community. They did experiments, they talk to people. And they realized that part of the sewage system when it rained heavy, which in India it tends to do on occasion, overflowed into the local pond. Well, that's a pawn that the animals drink from and the people washed in. So these kids got back online. They, you know, research. What can we do about this? They got in touch with experts beyond their village, and they came up with a plan. They presented this plan to the mayor and the Town Council folks who were vastly impressed. These kids were 12 to 16 years old, and the mayor was so impressed that he found the money and they implemented the changes that these kids had suggested. So these kids continue to track the disease rate over the next year, year and 1/2 and they found that the disease rate fell. I think of the impact these kids and that teacher head on this community. And yes, we did hear that the mayor did get re elected. You know, that's just one of hundreds of stories. There's a teacher in Arizona who designed a technology infused unit for her learning disabled students so that they became experts in the Holocaust. In genocide. They put on an event that 750 community members attended. They collected money at that event, and sent it to an orphanage in Uganda. The teacher in Pakistan who knew who understands that the literacy rate for women is one of the lowest in the world for women in Pakistan. She wanted her kids to do something about it. These kids use technology to analyze and research. They came up with a four session course on money management, that they actually went and talked to these women because these women didn't know howto handle their money and they were being cheated by the shop. Peter's Keepers. Not anymore. Those were just a couple things. Couple stories that showcase what kids and teachers could do with technology. It is pretty amazing. You know, technology is all around us, ubiquitous in our work, our home, the grocery store, not so much in the schools that are filled with digital natives. But teachers are personally vested in doing the best for their kids. They want their students to succeed. They want them to do well. And they know technology is a powerful tool that will allow them to do that. Ongoing professional development, like the until teach courses make the difference between a teacher who's frustrated with technology and one who embraces it to get her kids to analyze information, to collaborate with each other and to communicate, be on the four walls of the classroom as one of our teachers and Texas said it best. There will be no 21st century learning without a 21st century teacher. Thank you.
