Educational Technology Conference

Apple Sponsored Keynote Speaker for Jan. 14th Conference Day One- Anthony Stirpe @StirpeCon
During his career, Anthony Stirpe has been acknowledged as an innovator and pioneer in the area of English Language Arts. With more than 15 years of experience as a public-school teacher, he has been recognized by local, state, national and international organizations for his ongoing endeavors to revolutionize the traditional ELA experience. While at New Rochelle High School he spearheaded an initiative that uses mobile devices to challenge the way that students learn. The program Stirpe helped to create has challenged the traditional English Language Learner classroom experience and transformed the way students create original written content, analyze literature, and explore the power of the personal narrative. Stirpe received the 2016 Content and Curriculum Award from the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), the 2017 New York State English Program of Excellence by the New York State English Council, and in 2017 he was named an Apple Distinguished Educator. He was one of thirty teachers who was invited by Apple to develop original curriculum content presentations for the creative and iWorks suite of products. The presentations he helped to develop are now being shared and presented around the world. This past year Stirpe was awarded the 2019 TELL Award for his work on fostering social change through technology. His work has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, New York WPIX News, CPU Magazine and US News and World Report.
