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 computers
and the internet to engage students’ interest,
track their progress, individualize
instruction, and aid in decision making, an
understanding of how technology works and
how it can be used to transform teaching and
learning is an increasingly essential characteristic for the 21st-century school executive.
With our 7th annual Tech-Savvy Superintendent
Awards, sponsored by Blackboard Inc., eSchool
News recognizes 10 of the nation’s top K-12
executives for their outstanding leadership and
vision in educational technology. 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 American Association of
School Administrators’ annual conference in
New Orleans March 2.
