iSchool Initiative’s Travis Allen

Back in 2009, Travis Allen brought out a cell phone in his local Georgia High School with less than optimal results. He was quickly told to put his phone away. This spawned the iSchool Initiative stemming from 1 viral YouTube video.

While at Kennesaw State University, iSchool expanded to reach schools across the country and Europe

Travis and his team approach the common barriers with a professional development approach that utilizes tactile learning through their tour bus. The results have skyrocketed and they are now touring all over the country. As they gain ground, iSchool continues to branch out with resources necessary for longstanding technology adoption that eventually becomes transparent and a part of the general fabric of the school. Travis sat down with the Core, in London, while he and his team presented at BETT. Travis discusses the top 10 Common Barriers to Mobile Technology Adoption including Leadership and Vision. I think you will enjoy Travis’s unique approach to technology. It will be fascinating for the Core to follow Travis and the iSchool Initiative team. The old vanguard of edtech will have to take notice–the bus is coming to town!

Enjoy!
