CEO of Discovery Education, Bill Goodwyn, posted a blog post today that is will worth reading. He addresses the initiative by Secretary Duncan and Chairman Genachowski to assemble the CEOs from the top 15 educational technology companies in the United States and address challenges facing classrooms across America.
At Discovery Education, we talk to many districts across the country every week – urban and suburban, small and large, those with traditional classrooms and those with digital classrooms – and through those conversations, we consistently hear that a few formidable barriers still exist for districts looking to deploy digital learning tools successfully.
While the education community is intimately familiar with these barriers, it’s important for the non-educational community to understand the obstacles so that every man, woman and child in our country can advocate for the changes that our schools need in order to propel this digital learning initiative forward.
It’s a strong statement from our CEO, and worth reading in its entirety. Chime in and share your thoughts with the leader of Discovery Education!
