A year and a half ago, Dr. Jan Harris, district superintendent from Cullman City Schools, spotted Moby on the shirt of BrainPOP’s VP of 21st Century Learning, Dr. Kari Stubbs. Dr. Harris shared her district’s enthusiasm for BrainPOP and its use alongside other cutting edge technology tools to increase 21st century learning outcomes for students and teachers. BrainPOP has been following Cullman City Schools’ successes ever since and has had the opportunity to collaborate with one of their star Technology Integration Specialists, Aimee Bates.
Here at BrainPOP, we were ecstatic to learn that Cullman City Schools recently won the 2011 CoSN Team Award for their visionary leadership and utilization of technology! They were recognized during the CoSN annual conference for their effective and innovative use of technology to transform teaching practices, learning opportunities for students, parent and community involvement, and professional development for teachers. To learn more about the award and the accomplishments of Cullman City Schools, check out the recent press release issued by CoSN.
BrainPOP couldn’t be prouder of Cullman City School City schools! Keith Kreuger, CEO of CoSN, said it best in the press release, “From their implementation of a one-to-one laptop initiative to ensuring that teachers have the training and tools needed to use technology to enhance the educational experience, the Cullman City Schools team is an exemplar for other school districts and is well-deserving of this honor.”
In response to the receiving the award, Cullman City Schools collaborated to create a district-wide video celebrating their accomplishment. Check out their team video here.
