I highly value the opportunity to serve as a CODiE Judge! Through this experience, I am granted "back stage" access to new and developing technologies. I speak directly with staff involved in product development, helping me understand the features and benefits of products reviewed and goals for further development. As a district administrator, this experience helps me develop awareness of what's happening at the cutting edge of educational technology. I know what tools are available now and will likely be available in the near future to best meet the learning needs of students.

Being a CODiE Judge gives you an opportunity to talk with people in the companies who otherwise you might not have the opportunity to meet. You can ask questions and share ideas with people who can help you really learn the products or they can make adjustments to the products per your recommendation. I have had presenters say that they really like my idea or my question pushes them to think about their product a little bit differently.
