Daniel Frazier: ‘Bold leadership’ is needed for today’s schools
“We’re talking about fundamentally changing the structure of the 21st-century classroom. That’s a scary proposition that is going to alter the perceptions of our public as to what the classroom [environment] should be,” said Frazier, a 2012 winner of the Tech-Savvy Superintendent Awards from eSchool Media.
Frazier recently sat down with eSchool News Editor Dennis Pierce to discuss his district’s ed-tech accomplishments and the keys to its success.
In the interview, Frazier discussed how a one-to-one laptop program for students in grades 3-12 is facilitating an inquiry-based approach to learning in his district. He also described how he has been able to get “100-percent commitment” to implementing technology from his district’s staff by sending them out to other schools to see what successful innovations others were doing.
