Rock Hill Schools’ Lynn Moody in Washington for innovation workshop

32 educators from across the country are at the White House today, meeting with key White House staff on effectively introducing new technology in the classroom.

Rock Hill Schools superintendent Lynn Moody is one of those educators, and says the opportunity is a melting pot for new ideas on what’s working in other districts — and how teachers and administrators can innovate the classroom for the 21st century — with limited budgets.

Moody tells WRHI that when it comes to introducing high-tech tools in the classroom, the end goal always needs to be centered around the student — not just the new tool.

The Rock Hill School District is a part of Digital Promise, an organization authorized by Congress under the Obama administration towards spurring innovation in today’s schools.

Moody says the opportunity is a great way to show the White House what does — and does not — work in today’s schools.
