Guest Presenters


Mrs. Heather Callihan

I am the Technology Integration Specialist for Northwest Public Schools in Grand Island, Ne. I am currently the NETA Board president (@YourNETA), Common Sense Certified Educator and Ambassador. I have a passion for integrating technology in education. I believe learning needs to be visible and students need to master skills involving Collaboration, Creation, Communication and Critical Thinking. With seamless integration of technology and opportunities to participate in digital spaces, students have experiences that help them to live learn and work in an interconnected world.

I believe in building and maintaining a positive digital presence. I have a passion for sharing the importance of contributing to digital communities and the impact of digital leadership with students and adults. I love learning and love building my professional learning network with others who share this goal and passion.

Mr. Cameron Hudson

I am currently in my 10th year as the 4th/5th and 9th-12th grade principal at High Plains Community Schools in Polk, Nebraska. During my time as principal I have helped establish our 1 to 1 learning initiative, guided the development of school curriculum that is driven by technology, and created new programs centered on use of new and innovative technologies. A longtime member of NETA and a frequent presenter at the yearly technology conference, I was honored to be chosen by NETA as the 2017 Leading with Technology Award winner. I firmly believe that there is a place for technology in every classroom and believe that students cannot be “unplugged” when they enter our classrooms.
