Technical - Manager, Information Technology Services
My name is Martin Male and I have been with Yellowknife Education District No. 1 since July, 2006. I manage the Information Technology Services team and work closely with Education Services to make sure that the students, teachers and other staff have the technology tools they need to help with learning, teaching or just being able to do their jobs.
My wife and I are long time northern residents having spent 16 years in Inuvik before moving to Yellowknife. We have 3 grown children all of whom are successful in their own rights. We also have 3 dogs and love spending time with them outside in the evenings or on weekends walking in the fresh air. I am also an avid photographer and the north gives us a bounty of material for that purpose.
"If we teach today the way we were taught yesterday we aren't preparing students for today or tomorrow." - John Dewey
“We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher’s hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world.” – David Warlick
