Michigan Virtual instructor Andrew Vanden Heuvel was named one of TechSmith’s 20 Educators to Watch, a list of the few of many people that are “using education technology in notable ways.”

Andrew uses a variety of technology tools in his online courses. He says the most helpful items in his courses are the Camtasia videos that he uses to show students how to solve challenging problems, to demonstrate the use of an online simulation or to introduce a new concept.

Andrew teaches AP physics and astronomy for Michigan Virtual, and also serves as a course developer. He was named 2010’s Online Teacher of the Year in Michigan, along with Molly Bruzewski. Andrew was also one of five finalists for National Online Teacher of the Year.
