Don’t Mess With Texas Leadership

True change and vision begins with leadership. As John Kotter said, “Leaders Texasestablish the vision for the future and set the strategy for getting there; they cause change. They motivate and inspire others to go in the right direction and they, along with everyone else, sacrifice to get there.”

Discovery Education spent a day with the Livingston Independent School District administrators learning about the best practices of using Web 2.0 tools to allow students to collaborate, produce, and own more of their educational experience in the district. Over 30 administrators attended the session and were excited to engage, encourage, and effectively support their teachers integrating Discovery Education Streaming and Web 2.0 tools to provide their students with an extraordinary 21st century learning experience.  Technology specialists were thankful for the session because they were not lacking in technology hardware, but now they have the means to infuse it into their curriculum.
