"I'm not doing anything now that I didn't always want to do. I became a convert because I saw the academic utility in using technology in a thoughtful and intentional manner." Adam Carter, Chief Academic Officer of Summit Public Schools
Education Week published an article recently that serves as a humbling reminder that any impact we wish to have on students should be personalized and intentional. The article highlights Adam Carter’s personal journey from his early beginnings as an English teacher to becoming a pioneering force as Chief Academic Officer at Summit Public Schools. After working with less-resourced communities in Indonesia, he began to understand the importance of technology in education. His evolution led him back to Summit where he delved into researching technology, cognitive skills, student data, and Habits of Success, as well as collaborating with academic experts from Stanford on integrating online tools into Summit’s curriculum. He now works with our technology, information, and engineering teams to bring all of his research, experience, and learnings into practice with our Personalized Learning Plan (PLP).
