Change is never easy—but when you start with a clear vision that focuses on learning outcomes, and you involve all stakeholders in the process, and you model the effective use of technology to accomplish your goals, then transforming the culture of a school district is entirely possible.

Chosen by the editors of eSchool News with help from last year’s winners, these eight exemplary leaders revealed the keys to their success in a series of webinars hosted by Editor in Chief Dennis Pierce.
A common theme throughout the events was that ed-tech success begins with a clearly articulated vision for how technology can support student-centered instruction.
