Congratulations to EUSD teacher Brad Pascoe for his Gold Disk award, announced at the CUE conference March 21, 2014 in Palm Springs.  Brad has been in the district since 1976 and continues to support EUSD in his retirement as a part time EdTech TOSA.  The CUE Gold Disk award recognizes significant and long-term contributions to technology in learning.  

During Brad’s career as a classroom teacher and then a TOSA, he has made exceptional contributions to students, teachers, and adult learners as a coach, mentor, and as a university instructor of educational technology. He has without a doubt, been a constant catalyst for advancing student achievement through technology for over 30 years. Brad has been involved with many award winning and internationally renowned programs in Escondido, from his work at L.R. Green School, when it became a model site in the district and in the State, for use of the Internet and Multimedia in the classroom and became the first recipient of the Golden Bell Award in the district for their Multimedia Mentor Student program, to more recent exemplary district programs such as iREAD, an Apple Distinguished Program, focusing on the integration of iPods in learning for developing language and literacy with diverse and underserved populations, and the digital video projects through Project LIVE and the SDCOE supported iVIE Awards (Innovative Video in Education).

Outside the district, Brad was served as an instructor and mentor for many teachers through the ILAST Program (Improving Learning for all Student Through Technology), an exemplary Cal State University San Marcos professional development project funded through the Chancellor’s office for technology integration in the classroom in 2000-2003.  He then served as a mentor for additional EETT (Enhancing Education Through Technology) projects in Temecula and Fallbrook. Dr. Kathy Hayden, professor of technology at CSUSM states that Brad was one of the most motivating and influential project mentors, and through his coaching, teachers received the support needed to move them into new levels of technology integration that positively impacting student learning.

In additional to Brad’s role as an Education Technology Teacher for Escondido Union School District, he has devoted himself and involved others to help grow SDCUE's events. His contributions to SDCUE are widespread, having served as past Secretary and current President.  He has been a 20- year CUE member, bringing synergy and enthusiasm to the SDCUE team. Brad has helped SDCUE make the leap from a small annual event to one where over 1000 educators attend.  He has chaired the volunteer program for the annual event, and through his knack of being able to look at the big picture, plus having the dedication to detail, he has grown the event immensely.   

Congratulations Brad on this exciting honor!
