Dream on: Visionary Educators and Their Big Ideas
Waters, John K.
T.H.E. Journal, v37 n9 p20-24 Oct 2010
It takes more than a vision to be called a visionary. One also needs the organization, determination, and spirit to see it through. Four educators are being chosen to be spotlighted as visionaries conceived, developed, and guided technology-driven initiatives perhaps initially thought to be impractical. But their unusual foresight allowed each of them to imagine possibilities and outcomes that others could not, and they pushed through from the idea to implementation, achieving what all now recognize to be great benefits for their districts, schools, teachers, and students.
