Shawntee Cowan – Duncanville ISD

How enlightening it is to understand public education from the level of teacher to administrator. So says Shawntee Cowan, a former music teacher at the Duncanville, Texas, Independent School District for the past five years and, since May 2018, chief technology officer. “So often our technology was outdated and, as a teacher, I would get […]

Scott Pierce – Kingsport City Schools

He may not get out of the data center as much as he’d like, but when seeing firsthand the effects of his role during occasional classroom visits, Scott Pierce can further vindicate his long-ago decision to shift careers from teaching to technology. “It’s very rewarding to see an economically disadvantaged child who has never traveled […]

Serena Sacks – Fulton County School District

As her teacher conducts the day’s lesson, a student sits in rapt attention, brand new tablet in hand. Hearing a question she knows the answer to, the student’s hand darts up, eliciting the teacher’s go-ahead. When the hour runs out, it’s on to the next class. Only, she won’t be walking down the high school […]

Susan Beltz – Oakland Unified School District

In and of themselves, report cards can be complicated to decipher—antics of the likes of Bart Simpson aside—but imagine the added challenge as parents try to make sense of them in a foreign or a second language. Now imagine those parents receiving their child’s report card accompanied by a link to a personalized video; in […]

Steven R. Ferguson – Technical College System of Georgia

A man who acknowledges he bores easily wouldn’t seem likely to stay with the same employer for 17 years, but Steven R. Ferguson has never lacked for motivation in the many info-tech roles he has held at the Technical College System of Georgia. “It’s an ever-changing field,” the energetic and engaging Ferguson tells Toggle while […]

Stephan George – Jackson Public Schools

After growing up in Jackson, Mississippi, public schools, and working for them in various capacities for more than 15 years, Stephan George was moving on and ready to tackle a new challenge. But then the district superintendent hit him in what he called his “weak spot.” Come back, he said; do it for the children. […]

Sarah Trimble-Oliver – Cincinnati Public Schools

In a 10-minute video posted on the Cincinnati Public Schools website, students from throughout the district are shown talking to cameras, taking notes in the classroom and mingling with peers. Beyond sharing a school district, there’s something else the young learners have in common: almost all of them are holding district-issued laptops. As part of […]

Sean Moriarty – State University of New York in Oswego

As far as Sean Moriarty is concerned, it takes a village to create a digital campus. As chief technology officer at the State University of New York at Oswego, he leads just that type of village, his door open to suggestions and his staff willing to lend its expertise to other educational institutions in need […]

Saint Leo University

At Saint Leo University, technology is the great unifier. Founded in 1889, Saint Leo University is the oldest Catholic university in Florida, and, with more than 14,000 students, one of the largest in the United States. Although the physical campus is located just north of Tampa, the university has more than 40 education centers across […]

School District of Philadelphia

The pioneering American educator, Horace Mann, called education “a great equalizer of the conditions of men—the balance wheel of the social machinery.” More than a century later, that still holds true. But today, education has its own equalizer: technology. In order to produce college- and career-ready students, schools must have access to modern, real-world technology. […]

Testimonials

Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team. We were not only impressed with the caliber of the whitepaper that was produced, but with the level of attention from the team we partnered with. They were very detailed oriented and I appreciated their follow up. They even offered to refresh the article and invited Alliant to participate in some of the design features. It is without reservation that I highly recommend other businesses partnering with this publication and I look forward to an opportunity to work with them again in the future.
