For almost 11 years our Education Manager Superstar Allyson has been involved with trying to make SketchUp ubiquitous in schools worldwide. She has met with thousands of educators in that time, but there is one who stands out among all the others that is her favorite. His name is Mike Hathorn, and he teaches history and technology classes at Hartford High School in Vermont.
Last Fall, he set up a Maker lab in his classroom, and now Lynda.com has documented Mike, his students, and their work at Hartford High School. It's one of the best profiles we've ever seen of Mike's work as an educator, but also of SketchUp in a K-12 classroom (thanks Lynda!).
We make an amazing product here that reaches a lot of kids, some of whom are otherwise not engaged academically through traditional methods.
