Mike Lawrence

Chief Maverick
Orange County, California Area
For over twenty-five years, Mike Lawrence has been an advocate for innovation in education, first as a teacher, then as a county technology coordinator and most recently, a non-profit CEO. He co-founded the Google Certified Teacher and Leading Edge Certification programs. He is an Apple Distinguished Educator, and assisted in the development of the Discovery Educator Network (DEN). He served as CEO of CUE (CUE.org), helping the nonprofit grow over 500% in 12 years.
He served as Director of the California Student Media Festival (mediafestival.org), the nation’s oldest such festival for a decade and on the UNESCO Expert Group on Mobile Learning, the board of National Coalition for Technology in Education and Training (NCTET) and as an Expert Advisor for the California Emerging Technology Fund (CETF). In 2011, he was honored as one of the "20 to Watch in Educational Technology" and was awarded the ISTE Making IT Happen award in 2013. He’s Chief Maverick of Maverick Learning, and was tapped last year to help create the ISTE Certified Educator program through his freelance educational transformation firm. He enjoys living in Southern California with his wife and kids, sporadically performing in musical theater with his youngest daughter and serving as treasurer of the Choir Boosters for his (now driving - yikes!) second tenor son.
