Chad Stevens, Strategy Lead, Educational "Why"
I believe that students deserve ubiquitous and equitable access to technology resources. I am passionate that schools deserve the same tools that drive innovation in other industries. As a former teacher, a principal, and a technology leader, I recognize that technology is just one tool for learning. When school leaders embrace new technologies that increase efficiency, equity, and agility, it allows us to reinvest back in the classroom. I am a believer that the teacher is the most critical part of the school system. We must invest in them. That interaction between a student and a teacher is where the magic happens in schools.
