Regional Recipient

Robert Watt

Robert Watt, of Centennial Public School in Ottawa, believes that technology should fit the student rather than the other way around. And he's not afraid to ask for corporate help to get the tools he needs. For example, one of his students had a serious speech impediment. Mr. Watt found multimedia that could help with therapy, and the student's speech and language skills soon began to improve dramatically. The communication disorder also became less of a barrier to the child's education.
