The Mathletics Lead Educator Program is a new initiative that recognises and supports K-12 educators who are innovative leaders exhibiting passion and creativity, integrating Mathletics technologies in their classroom, school and community and sharing best practice to transform teaching and learning.
This exciting program is in its second year and our Mathletics Leading Educators (MLEs) are ambassadors to their community inspiring teachers and students with their passion for teaching with technology. MLEs are dynamic leaders willing to share innovation within their professional networks for the benefit of students across the state with a view to developing a broader global network.
Currently the MLE program is open to Australian teachers only, launching globally later in the year. For more information on MLEs and the certification process, visit the new MLE microsite.
We are extremely proud to introduce our current MLEs – based in Queensland, Australia.
