A southern Colorado teacher is being recognized as one of the state's leaders in making education more accessible to students, and he's doing it with technology.
Luis Nazario has been involved with online learning since it started to become popular in the mid-90's. Now he teaches english at Pueblo Community College, where his students can easily access a website to see what topics were covered in the day's lecture or take quizzes that are instantly graded. "We're looking at 21st century students and we do have to apply this technology to that need. We have it here, let's make it work," says Nazario.
Wednesday, Nazario will be honored with a Jerry Wartgow Teaching with Technology Award for his work by the Colorado Community College System at a luncheon in Aurora.
