Bringing Educational Innovation to Scale: A Threshold Forum
In this podcast [MP3, 39MB], Christopher Dede (Timothy E. Wirth Professor of Learning Technologies at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education) with the assistance of Threshold's Ellen Ullman moderates a panel that explores the current state of 'scalability,' educational change, and how to get where we need to be - a topic of critical importance to the government, grantmakers, and all those seeking to spread successful educational practices to other classrooms, school, districts, and states. Panel participants include:
- Kathleen Fulton, Director for Reinventing Schools, NCTAF;
- L. McLean King, Superintendent of the Encinitas (Calif.) Union School District (and a Cable in the Classroom National Education Advisory Board member);
- Trish Millines Dziko, Executive Director, Technology Access Foundation; and
- Josh Zoia, Principal, KIPP Academy Lynn (Massachusetts).
