Madison Schools Technology Admin Wins State Award For Education Innovation

Posted by John Peck in General

Big congratulations to Mr. Daniel Whitt, Coordinator of Instructional Technology for Madison City Schools.

Mr. Whitt earned a coveted Chiquita Marbury Technology Innovation Award from the Alabama Department of Education. The Marbury recognizes educators who are exemplary models of technology teachers and leaders.
Nominees were judged based on the following five criteria: Innovation and Creativity, Impact on Teaching and Learning, Leadership, Teamwork and Scholarship.
The awards will be presented
June 14 during the opening session of the 2017 Alabama Educational Technology Conference (AETC) held at Hoover High School in Hoover.

Mr. Whitt and his technology instruction team have rapidly propelled Madison City to the forefront of school districts that empower students and teachers through innovative approaches that fuel creativity and use real-world applications.
Students even in elementary grades are learning about Digital Portfolios, while dozens of teachers working in “Forward Teams” share ideas in project-based learning and technology integration.
Mr. Whitt led the creation of internships at the Central Office, using students that produce videos, web design, and other technology assistance. One intern that developed an app for the school district has since been hired to design one for a baseball organization.

Mr. Whitt is currently finishing a documentary entitled, “Digital Portfolios: The Whole Child, The Whole Story,” and its accompanying Google Drive folder that will be free to anyone in the world.
