Melinda is the Director of the Learning Technology Center at Area 6 North, and in that role, she works with three Regional Offices of Education and fifty school districts in southern Illinois to promote the use of technology. Scott is the district Technology Facilitator at the The Joseph Sears School in Kenilworth, Illinois.

Scott MeechMelinda Fiscus will do three Spotlight sessions on Thursday and two on Friday. Her session topics are "Capturing the Spirit of your Classroom," "Understanding E-Rate," and "Creating the Collection." Scott Meech will do two Spotlight sessions on Thursday and two more on Friday. His sessions are titled "Mobile Learning Devices" and "The Life-long Learning Tool Belt."  These two ICE members are great examples of the underlying spirit and mission of ICE–educators sharing their expertise and passion for the many possibilities that instructional technology resources offer for our students and our communities.
