National Education Technology Publication (THE Journal) Features BHS

At the end of last week an article was published in THE Journal, a national publication dedicated to "transforming education through technology.  While the article focused on the role of the Principal in moving technology initiatives forward, I wanted to take a moment to reiterate the fact that the success of an initiative like our iPad implementation is determined by the entire school community. We are fortunate in Burlington to be supported by a School Committee and townspeople that are willing to support our efforts to put more instructional resources in the hands of students.  More importantly, we have teachers who are willing to step outside of their comfort zone and integrate these resources in order to help create more engaging and relevant learning environments for our students.

On another note, it was an honor to be included in an article with two friends and colleagues (Eric Sheninger and Lyn Hilt). Both are nationally recognized for their leadership in the use of social media and technological resources. Eric is the Principal at New Milford High School in New Jersey and Lyn is the Principal at  Brecknock Elementary School in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
