Dr. Raymond McNulty will be presenting a keynote presentation based on Building Innovation and Leadership Density, at the 2009 Texas ASCD Annual Conference taking place at the end of the month in Frisco.

Where do we go from here? Wikipedia defines innovation as: “The term innovation refers to a new way of doing something. It may refer to incremental and emergent or radical and revolutionary changes in thinking, products, processes, or organizations.” So what does this have to do with schools and leadership? It is 2009, we are in the 21st Century and we are just now looking at how to prepare for it in our schools. Is it time to make changes to help our students? Building leadership or leadership density is one way to lead the way with these changes. Dr. McNulty will share five leadership lessons and strategize how to build innovation and leadership density during his keynote presentation on Monday, October 26th. We hope you can join us.

Dr. Alan November will present, From Smart Toilets to Smart Schools, at the 2009 Texas ASCD Annual Conference.

Dr. November is going to help us understand how technology and innovation can help prepare our children for a global economy. He will discuss not only technology, but how you can use technology to seek new information and communicate with others. Are your schools innovating and combining new technologies into their lessons? If not, how is this affecting your schools/students? Are you preparing your students for the world outside of your school district?
