Tech-Savvy Superintendent Awards

The move toward an increasingly digital society, and the emergence of a new era of accountability in the nation’s schools, have changed our expectations of the superintendency. As school leaders come to rely on computing devices and the internet to engage students’ interest, track their progress, personalize instruction, and aid in decision making, understanding of how technology works and how it can be used to transform teaching and learning is increasingly essential for the 21st-century school executive.

In our ninth annual Tech-Savvy Superintendent Awards, sponsored by Promethean, the Pearson Foundation, and K12 Inc., eSchool News recognizes 10 of the nation’s top K-12 executives for their outstanding ed-tech leadership and vision. Chosen by the editors of eSchool News with help from last year’s winners, these 10 exemplary leaders will be honored in a private ceremony held in conjunction with the Century Club 100 at the American Association of School Administrators’ annual conference in San Francisco Feb. 20.
