Instructional Technology Coordinator
Springfield, Illinois Area
John Langley is the current president of Illinois Digital Educators Alliance and a member of the Mid-Central Region Scholastic Art Board. He has been an educator for 24 years at Pleasant Plains School District. The first 16 years of his career, he taught high school English, speech, yearbook, photography, and the past 8 years he has been the district Instructional Technology Coordinator. As a teacher, John and his students worked on several global projects and projects with students from other Illinois schools. In instructional technology, John prepares all learners (teachers and students) with the digital skills they will need in order to be successful now and in the future as empowered learners, creators, computational thinkers, creative communicators, collaborators, and responsible digital citizens. Overall, he thinks learning should be fun. John is an avid runner and bicyclist. Even though he isn’t brave enough to play in front of a crowd, he loves to play guitar and is learning to play the piano. John has passed on his love for solving Rubik’s cube puzzles to his daughter, an aspiring speed cuber.
