He is currently serving on the Arkansas State technology planning committee and is chairing the teaching and learning subcommittee.

He also believes we must embrace mobile technologies as a teaching tool, as well as a delivery mechanism for relevant content for classrooms. Harry has a wife named Quita and two young sons, Harrison and Jordan. Andrew Churches is a teacher and ICT enthusiast. He teaches at Kristin School on Auckland's North Shore, a school with a mobile computing program that sees students with personal mobile devices and laptops.

Andrew believes that to prepare our students for the future we must prepare them for change and teach them to question, think, adapt, and modify.
