In 1978, LeRoy Finkel joined a group of dedicated educators to create Computer-Using Educators, an organization with a national reputation for its leadership in the use of technology in the classroom. LeRoy was an educator who recognized that technology would become a major factor in the educational process. From CUE's very beginning, he showed the way as teachers struggled to integrate computers into their classrooms, and their lives. He wrote books and articles, praised good products, sniped at bad ones, and scrutinized every aspect of educational computing for the benefit of all. In memory of Mr. Finkel, CUE offers an annual fellowship to promote leadership in the field of educational technology.”
