David Carruthers Conference Co-Chair

I’m really excited to join the ECCO Board of Directors. As the BIT Conference Co-Chair, my primary responsibility will be assisting in the organization of BIT19.

I am currently a Learning Technologies Coordinator with the Thames Valley District School Board in London, Ontario. As of September 2019, I am thrilled to be returning to the classroom after 4 years in my current role. I have taught grades 2 through 8 during my 18 years as an educator, and have always been passionate about technology integration in the learning environment. I believe that in the right hands, technology can be a transformative tool for student learning. It can create opportunities for students that may have otherwise been inconceivable. Building relationships and connecting with others in my professional learning network is fundamental to my growth as an educator and the BIT Conference is a fantastic place to make this happen!
