CICERO, NY - Cicero-North Syracuse High School German teacher Mary Ann Niemczura has been recognized for her innovative use of video conferencing at the school.
Niemczura was named the education/training winner of Tandberg's first Video Champion Awards. Tandberg is a provider of telepresence, high-definition video conferencing and mobile video solutions, according to a news release.
"The awards honor organizations that are demonstrating positive impact and influence in video communications," the release said.
North Syracuse School Superintendent Jerome F. Melvin described Niemczura as a "forward-thinking" teacher.
"(She) has been bringing this exciting and innovative way of learning to her classroom students for many years," Melvin said in the news release. "In that time, hundreds of her German students have had the incredible opportunity to, through the use of technology, cross the globe and experience learning in an actual German classroom.
