District Administration Magazine honors Castleberry ISD as a 2018 School of TechXcellence

Fort Worth, Texas- District Administration Magazine is honoring 22 schools and districts for education technology initiatives as part of the Schools of TechXcellence program. This is the second year for this national recognition program.

TechXcellence was created by District Administration magazine, and sponsored by HP and Intel, to recognize schools that have implemented innovative, effective, and replicable technology programs that contribute meaningfully to student or operational success. The June 2018 honorees were selected by the program's judges from numerous nominations, and reflect programs that demonstrate effective and replicable success.

the 22 schools and districts honored in this round of TechXcellence- from 13 states- have programs that incorporate technology powered by Intel, including laptops, tablets, and 3D printers.

Castleberry ISD is being recognized for "Reinventing Math with Ozobots", in which students utilized a robotic tool and coding to learn about coordinate grids. Taking a STEM focused approach with the Ozobots deviated from sit-and-get instruction, allowing students to really get their minds and hands involved in a real world simulation.

The Castleberry ISD initiative underscores the importance of embracing technology as part of the education process moving forward in the 21st century.

"What these stories tell us is that students are excited to use the latest devices and applications as part of their education, which is fueled by the vision and drive of teachers, principals, and district leaders," says JD Solomon, editorial director at District Administration magazine. "We hope our readers are inspired by the integration of technology demonstrated by these honorees to launch similar initiatives in their own schools."
