Recognizing the Tech Stars in Your Midst

Matthew Ramirez, cofounder of Writelab, is just one of 30 educational innovators under the age of 30 (Ramirez is 26) who were recently recognized by Forbes. There’s a great deal of innovation taking place today, much of it in education–it’s good to shine the spotlight on those who are paving the way for the future of education. Do you have educational innovators in your midst?

Odds are you do, and they don’t necessarily have to come from the under-30 crowd. As schools work to better leverage technology in innovative ways, that are still tied to sound pedagogy, providing a forum for recognizing the tech stars in your midst can be a great way to provide recognition and drive even greater adoption.
