School districts must allow the transformation to take place. It takes intentionality and a great deal of coherent planning to upgrade and repurpose the traditional models of K-12 public education. I will be joining the Lindsay Unified School District next fall to immerse myself in this transformation. I’ve taught in the traditional model for nearly 30 years, and with the adaptive technologies we have now, I don’t see why we must remain stuck in old habits when we can now take education to a new level of effectiveness. The best of the past can be hybridized with the progressive emerging technologies of the here and now.
