The Bronxville School was awarded the Lower Hudson Regional Information Center 2016 Pioneer Award for Technology during a ceremony on May 13. Superintendent of Schools Dr. David Quattrone and Director of Technology Jennifer Forsberg accepted the award on behalf of the district.
"Under the leadership of Jennifer Forsberg, and with key support from instructional technology specialist Brad Ashley, the district has made significant and rapid progress with respect to the way we use technology in creative and constructive ways that advance teaching and learning,” Dr. Quattrone said. “She has not only introduced new applications, but she brings a strong systems perspective to the table. She has reached out in a thoughtful and effective way to parents on issues of digital citizenship and data privacy. We are fortunate to have her skills and expertise."
According to LHRIC, the Bronxville School received the award for demonstrating regional leadership through its innovative initiatives and programs that encourage global citizenship, leadership, critical thinking and innovation in its students through the use of technology. LHRIC committee members said the district presents a model for others to follow and is on the leading edge of instructional technology trends.
Every year, the LHRIC Pioneer Awards are presented to a school district, teacher and director of technology from the Westchester, Rockland and Putnam county region in recognition for their innovative uses of technology that change teaching and learning. The 22nd annual Pioneer Award ceremony was held at the Edith Macy Conference Center in Briarcliff Manor.
