New York Initiatives

When I was in the US recently, I had a full day meeting and workshops with Celine Azoulay who is the Borough Director – Instructional Technology (Staten Island). The New York Department of Education is the largest in the US and looks after over 1.4 million students.

Celine’s team of leaders are approaching the challenge of supporting learning in today’s world using enabling technologies through a great global project on climate change.  The web 2.0 technologies are linking nearly 30 schools in New York with schools around the world in a secure environment engaging teachers and students in significant and complex learning experiences.

It is a great leadership initiative that recognizes the physical and virtual capacity of schooling today.
