Dr. Arden Moore

LACUE selects teachers from across the state who push the boundaries of education through the use of technology. Moore was chosen from a pool of accomplished educators from across 14 northeast Louisiana parishes. Moore received the honor for his use of technology in the classroom, including hands-on activities and demonstrations involving engines, heat pipes, thermoelectrics, and high-resolution thermal imaging. He has also worked to integrate advanced technologies such as 3D printing, engineering with sustainable materials, and high-altitude science into real-world problem solving for students. “I was very honored to be nominated for this award, and even more honored to receive it.” Said Moore. “LACUE does great work across the state to promote technology in education. I’m very appreciative of their efforts and am now more motivated than ever to incorporate new technology into all phases of my teaching.” “We are grateful to the LACUE for recognizing Dr. Moore for his innovative teaching methods,” Dr. Hisham Hegab, dean of the College of Engineering and Science said. “The College is fortunate to have faculty like him that are passionate about student learning and are engaging students in the classroom with the latest technologies.” Moore was recognized during the 32nd Annual LACUE Conference in New Orleans, held earlier this month. LACUE is a professional, nonprofit organization with more than 10,000 members that recognizes and promotes the use of computers in Louisiana education. The group seeks to share best practices, increase service to members, and strengthen impact in their local education communities. Written by Brandy McKnight –
