He has received numerous national awards for his technology leadership work, including recognitions from the cable industry, Phi Delta Kappa, and the National School Boards Association. In Spring 2011 he was a Visiting Canterbury Fellow at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand.

Here are my notes from the NETS-A Refresh session...
Dr. Don Knezek, CEO of ISTE, asked me to stand up and describe the innovative work that CASTLE and I have done regarding the National Educational Technology Standards for Administrators (NETS-A). That was very kind of him to recognize our work. Thank you, Don!

It makes more sense to align the NETS-A with existing leadership standards (e.g., ELPS) than it does to align to NETS-S or NETS-T.
