The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) has announced that the Rowan-Salisbury School System will be honored as an outstanding educational leader at the world’s premier educational technology event, ISTE 2013, to be held in San Antonio, Texas, later this month.
Rowan-Salisbury School System is the winner of the “2013 Sylvia Charp Award for District Innovation in Technology.” This award is presented by ISTE and T.H.E. Journal, which stands for Technological Horizons in Education. It goes to a school system that exhibits effectiveness and innovation in the application of technology. It honors the equitable and appropriate technology use for all students in a school system with the goal of increasing learning opportunities and improving achievement.
“Rowan-Salisbury is a standout district whose work truly deserves honor,” said T.H.E. Journal Editorial Director Theresa Mageau, who served as a judge for the award. “The district has made an exemplary commitment to using technology to promote 21st century teaching and learning systemwide. Their initiatives—from model classrooms to WiFi buses, to their expert use of data and their community outreach programs—can truly serve as beacons of best practices for other districts seeking the same goals.”
