    Caroline McCullen, SAS inSchool, Cary, NC
    (  Caroline McCullen is the Instructional Technologist for SAS inSchool, the K-12 Education Division of SAS Institute, the world’s largest privately held software corporation.  Much of her time is spent working with educators across the country as they provide feedback and suggestions for the award-winning software being developed at SAS inSchool®.  Her interest in technology began in her middle school English classroom in 1994, where she established MidLink Magazine, a nationally recognized web site created by students and teachers all over the world. She taught for 22 years  in public schools at the middle and high school level.  For two years, she served as an Educator-on-Loan to the NC Department of Public Instruction, and in 1996 she was honored by Technology & Learning as the National Technology Teacher of the Year. 

    Her degrees include a B.A. in English with a minor in education, and a M.S. in ESOL. She continues to publish numerous articles in Technology & Learning, Learning and Leading with Technology, ISTE’s HyperNEXUS, Multimedia Schools, the Florida English Journal, Florida Technology Quarterly, and many other technology periodicals.  In 1997, she established the "Electronic Thread" column, which became a regular feature in the National Middle School Association’s Journal, Middle Ground. 

    Caroline also served on the National Technology Expert Panel, an 18-member panel of educators and researchers from across the US, assembled by the Department of Education in Washington, DC.  This panel established criteria for evaluating the effectiveness of school or district technology programs, and the Department of Education published their work in a booklet distributed nation-wide.

    For 5 years, Caroline has been on the board of  HyperSIG, Multimedia Special Interest Group of the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE).  From 2000 - 2002, she served as President of HyperSIG and worked to establish an international multimedia competition called Multimedia Mania.  She is currently serving as Presidential Advisor to the board of HyperSIG.  

    She continues to work with an international staff of talented teacher-editors to publish MidLink Magazine and often presents keynotes and workshops at national and state conferences on topics such as web publishing, digital copyright, technology integration, multimedia, and assessment.  

    She has been happily married to her best friend...her husband, Dewey, for 35 years.  They have two children, ages 26 and 28, both of whom graduated from public schools.
