Is your school board leading when it comes to technology? #edtech #edleader

In her blog post Why School Boards Should Focus on Education Technology, Ann Flynn, Director of Education Technology and State Association Services for NSBA, writes a compelling argument as to why school boards should take a more serious look at technology:

Technology has changed the way virtually every industry in the world operates – from farmers to physicians – by supporting people’s relationships with one another and their work. Just as eBay altered commerce, iTunes changed the music industry, and Amazon forever changed the corner bookstore, technology innovations are poised to transform and disrupt the decades-old model of school as we currently define it. While some school districts have embraced technology to manage the complexities of the education enterprise, not nearly enough have experienced the efficiencies and academic successes that exist when all of the right elements are in place.

Superintendents should be working with their boards to lead this transformation.
