As a former teacher and principal, Greg Butler understands firsthand the pain and reward of the education profession. He has worked on teacher development at the university level, as well as at the regional level in Australia around the use of technology in classrooms. As manager of Educator and Student Development at Microsoft, Butler is working on a professional development program for K-12 teachers. Part of this approach is a new program launched today by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer at the sixth annual Connected Learning Community (CLC) Technology Summit.
