1/100 - Jacques

Earlier this week a colleague and I attended a workshop at Apple in Montreal.  The session was called, "Learning and Teaching with the iPad".  It gave teachers and technology consultants a chance to see what is being done with the iPad.  We not only shared apps but experiences and solutions.  During the first part of the day, three educators presented their 'story'.  One of theses speakers was Jacques.

Jacques is a musician and teacher.  He not only plays the double bass but he teaches music at Mother Teresa Junior High School in Laval.   He also has the title of Apple Distinguished Educator.  He talked about his journey and how he brings technology into his music classes.  It was easy to hear and see his passion for music, technology and of course teaching.  In the background you see part of the video he produced to promote his school.

Jacques was familiar with the 100 Strangers project and willingly let me take his picture.  He even gave me some photography pointers.   Later that day I saw him helping a music teacher who wanted to do composition and recording with her classes.  Thanks for being so generous with your time and knowledge, Jacques.  It was a pleasure meeting you.
